Three recommended shows to see on Thursday 23 Aug…

Four Go Wild In Wellies | Dance Base | 2.10pm
First a top tip from the children’s show programme. Summarises our reviewer: “Inclusive theatre company Indepen-dance 4 have come up with a gently enchanting little show about which everything – music, set, story, themes and length – is spot on for the target 3-5 age range. Lovely”.

Pickle Jar | Underbelly Cowgate | 4.40pm (pictured)
Into the theatre programme and a 5/5 show at Underbelly. “As the layers of the story build, it becomes apparent that there is something darker emerging”, reports our reviewer, “and when this is made clear it’s an emotional punch to the stomach”. Said review adds: “Although addressing themes of grief and consent, it’s full of humour too”.

Number, Please. | theSpace on North Bridge | 8.05pm
And some more 5/5 recommended theatre now. Our reviewer commends how this piece “updates the traditional spy film of the 1950s to include a female lead, commenting on the tropes of the genre from plot twists to femme fatales, and creating a show that is both hilarious and oddly nostalgic”.
