Jerry Finnegan's Sister

Three to see at the Edinburgh Festival tomorrow…

Jerry Finnegan’s Sister | C nova | 12.00pm (pictured)
Three recommendations from the theatre programme today, kicking off with this C show. “The plot could have been lifted straight from a John Hughes movie, but it’s none the worse for that”, notes our reviewer. “A feel-good comedy with genuine heart”. So go feel good.

Revolt. She Said. Revolt Again. | Traverse Theatre | 4.15pm
Next, one at the Traverse. “What stands between us and changing the way things are? This is exactly what Alice Birch looks at” in this show, reports our reviewer. It’s “a frank exploration of the constraints of being a modern woman, and what would happen if we rebelled against them”.

A Good Clean Heart | Underbelly Cowgate | 6.00pm
And finally, a play in both English and Welsh, though with surtitles throughout, so don’t worry. “The use of the two languages helps emphasise the rift in the courses of two brothers’ lives” says our reviewer. Want more? “The best play I have seen at this or any other Fringe”.
