Three to see at the Edinburgh Festival tomorrow…

Philip Pullman’s The Ruby In The Smoke | Pleasance Dome | 12.00pm
“Reprint Productions’ staging of Philip Pullman’s detective adventure novel exceeded all my expectations” says our reviewer of this show. “The set and sound design perfectly evoke the book’s atmosphere”, they add, making this “one of the most enjoyable hours I’ve spent at this Festival”. Go enjoy.

Bethany Black: (Extra)Ordinary | The Stand 2 | 6.00pm (pictured)
Definitely on top form this Fringe, try and see Bethany Black’s latest show before the Festival finishes. “A self-proclaimed cat-loving Sapphic stereotype, Black pulls laughs out of the unlikeliest, often tragic, places with the command of a pro who has been headlining the Apollo for twenty years”. Conclusion? “A total delight”.

We Are Ian | Pleasance Dome | 11.00pm
OK, here it is, the final Three To See style tip of the Fringe, and it’s some late-night theatre. “Performers Kat Cory, Dora Lynn and Nora Alexander recreate their friend Ian’s experience of the 1989 acid house movement through music, dance and clowning” our reviewer explains. “The show is well-structured, with a strong emotional arc, and the sound and lighting design are fantastic. You need to experience it for yourselves”. So, yeah, go experience it for yourself.
