Three recommended shows to see on Friday 24 Aug…

Lights Over Tesco Car Park | Pleasance Dome | 10.50am (pictured)
We kick off our final Three To See of Edinburgh 2018 with a 5/5 theatre show. “Conspiracy theories, 1980s pop culture and the reality of feeling alone on a big planet are all explored in this brilliant show”, says our reviewer. “The line between what is true and what is false is made insignificant, as the talented cast jump from laugh-out-loud humour to hypnotic narration”.

The Providence Of Neighbouring Bodies | Underbelly Cowgate | 2.30pm
Our reviewer was initially “nonplussed” about this show because “the programme mentioned beavers – at length”. However, they add: “When Ronnie’s Airbnb guest arrives in the form of Jane, an anthropomorphic beaver, things started to make sense”. So go see it all make sense for yourself!

Tilda Swinton Answers An Ad On Craigslist | Assembly George Square Theatre | 9.20pm
And finally a 5/5 top comedy recommend. “Walt’s boyfriend is moving out, so he’s posted an ad on Craigslist looking for a new flatmate, and it’s Tilda Swinton who’s come to stay”, our reviewer explains. “A sort of fairy godmother/ghost of Christmas past character, she helps Walt to make sense of his life and stand up for himself”. Highly recommended.
