How Not To Live In

Three to see at the Edinburgh Festival tomorrow…

Hamlet In Bed | Pleasance Courtyard | 2.10pm
OK, let’s start with something Shakespearian themed, shall we? “Numerous parallels are cleverly established between the ‘real’ story and the Shakespearian one”, says our reviewer of this show, “and the actors brilliantly develop and embody both”. Conclusion? “A phenomenal take on Shakespeare’s play”.

How (Not) To Live In Suburbia | Summerhall | 4.50pm
In this “relatable and surprisingly uplifting show about loneliness and living”, you follow Annie Siddons’ “strikingly honest” account of “what happened when the ‘walrus of loneliness’ came to call, following a move to the suburbs with her daughters and the breakdown of her marriage”. Packed with zany touches, it’s definitely one to see.

Guitar Multiverse | C too | 7.30pm
How about something musical to finish off with? Declan Zapala is a virtuoso and – says our reviewer – “watching him play was just as entertaining as listening to him”. Concludes the review: “In what universe is Zapala a star? All of them!”
