Three recommended shows to see on Tuesday 7 Aug – every one a former ThreeWeeks Editors’ Award winner…

Prom Kween | Assembly George Square Gardens | 9.05pm (pictured)
Every Festival we present our ThreeWeeks Editors’ Awards at the close of the Fringe to the ten shows and performers who we think made that year’s festivities extra special. Many former winners are back in Edinburgh this August, including this new musical with contemporary themes, snappy show tunes, pithy jokes, on-point pop culture references and superb surprises. Our reviewer loved this “life-affirming musical” so much last year, we handed it one of our awards.

Hot Brown Honey | Gilded Balloon Teviot | 7.30pm
Another winner from the ThreeWeeks Editors’ Awards 2017 and a show we love so much we put it on the cover of our Preview Edition. Listed in cabaret, but energetically defying genre categorisation, this extraordinary troupe offer an important and uncompromising exploration of race, gender, identity and culture that our reviewer last year called an “adrenaline-fuelled middle finger to repression and the patriarchy”.

Rob Auton: The Talk Show | Just The Tonic at The Caves | 6.10pm
And one more winner of an Editors’ Award in 2017 who is back in town this Fringe. Over a number of festivals, our reviewers have been impressed by Rob Auton’s uniquely affecting, hilarious shows which fall somewhere between stand-up and spoken word. Always recommended!
