Three recommended shows to see on Sunday 27 Aug…

Out Of Love | Roundabout @ Summerhall | 10.25am
In our penultimate Three To See of Edinburgh 2017 we recommend this “sincere, honest examination of female friendship in all its intensity”. Says our reviewer: “This is theatre at its most intimate, which grips your heart and mind long after the show has finished”.

Spontaneous Sherlock | Liquid Rooms Annexe | 7.50pm
The set up: “Each audience member is given a piece of paper saying ‘Sherlock Holmes and the…’ We fill in the gap. The pieces of paper are drawn out of a hat, and from there, the utterly bizarre improvisation ensues”. The result? “With ridiculous plots and a constant stream of gags, these witty performers induced side-splitting laughter across the entirety of the performance”.

Jordan Brookes: Body Of Work | Pleasance Courtyard | 11.00pm (pictured)
In this show, notes our reviewer, “erratic, fast-paced humour is mixed with awkward, drawn-out scenes that take you to the brink of discomfort through over-exaggerated gestures”. In summary, this “borders on the grotesque but remains genuinely hilarious”.
