LUCY GARLAND: MAKING A PATH THROUGH THE FOREST
It's an important fact worth remembering that not all theatre is accessible to everyone, and that there are ways in which performances can be created for people whose needs go beyond the norm.

'The Forest', which is in Edinburgh for a short run this August, is the work of Frozen Light, a company which works with a very specific aim in mind – to stage theatre for those with severe learning disabilities.

We spoke to Lucy Garland, who founded the company with Amber Onat Gregory. Read the interview here.

'The Forest' is on at Pleasance Courtyard from 22-25 Aug.



BRENDON BURNS: WRESTLING VS COMEDY
Alongside TW tipped show 'Dumb White Guy' at the Liquid Room Annexe, Brendon Burns is also back at the Fringe this year with his late night institution 'Brendon Burns And Colt Cabana Do Comedy And Commentary To Bad Wrestling Matches!'

It's now in its fourth year, which is pretty damn good for a show entirely constructed simply because it amused its hosts. Though, with hindsight, Burns reckons it's not all that surprising to find there's quite a crossover between fans of wrestling and fans of stand-up comedy. As he explains in this exclusive column here.

'Brendon Burns And Colt Cabana Do Comedy And Commentary To Bad Wrestling Matches!' is on at Pleasance Dome from 3-28 Aug.

ThreeWeeks Co-Editor Caro Moses recommends shows at this year's Edinburgh Festival, in handy sets of three.

THREE TOP CABARET SHOWS >>

Peter And Bambi Heaven – The Magic Inside | Assembly George Square Gardens | 4-28 Aug (pictured)
I'm reliably informed that this show is both funny and fabulous, which is no great surprise given the award-winning/nominated team behind it. Asher Treleaven and Gypsy Wood play "Australia's most deluded dancing magicians". Go on, they had you at "deluded dancing magicians", didn't they? I'd book your tickets quickly to beat the rush.

Tomas Ford's Craptacular | Sweet Grassmarket | 4-28 Aug
One of TW's long term favourite cabaret types Tomas Ford returns with a show with a marvellous title, which will feature a set of the "worst songs ever". He's a veteran of cabaret, a Fringe regular, an award winner, and a provoker of five star write-ups from our reviewers. If you haven't seen him perform yet, then frankly, it's about time you did.

Roulston & Young – Songs For Lovers (And Other Idiots) | Laughing Horse @ The Free Sisters | 4-28 Aug
If you want funny and clever songs from a talented and proven duo, then this pair are an entirely safe and super bet. Michael Roulston and Sarah-Louise Young are both completely brilliant and have won lots of acclaim and awards. Apparently The Stage have described them as "A Flanders And Swann for the 21st Century", and I think I would probably agree with that. Don't miss this, or the other show they are responsible for, 'Cabaret Whore Presents... La Poule Plombee'.

THREE CIRCUS SHOWS >>

The Hogwallops | Underbelly's Circus Hub | 4-22 Aug
Hurrah for the circus, and for Underbelly's Circus Hub on the Meadows, where, as you might expect, it's all about, well, the circus. Our first recommendation is for a show from Lost In Translation Circus that you might already have heard of, because it's back by popular demand after a previously highly acclaimed run. 'The Hogwallops' is a colourful, quirky and funny show inspired by Roald Dahl's 'The Twits', and it's a perfect show to go and see as a family.

Closer by Circa | Underbelly George Square | 3-29 Aug
Yaron Lifschitz's award-winning Australian ensemble Circa is renowned for its boundary-pushing shows which blur the lines between circus, movement, dance and theatre. This intimate show has been specially commissioned by Underbelly to bring audiences a close look at what physical feats the human body can achieve, and it sounds amazing.

Elixir | Underbelly's Circus Hub | 4-22 Aug
This late night fun-filled extravaganza has a strong narrative, despite being a circus show: three mad scientists are trying to find a cure for a zombie epidemic. It's an Aussie import, and you may not have heard of Head First Acrobats yet, but you surely will hear more of them in the future – this show has won acclaim elsewhere, and I expect a great critical response in Edinburgh too.
