Edinburgh Fringe recommendations

In case you don't have time to browse the full gimp owl catalogue, we’d like to recommend a few shows by friends of ours who make brilliant, brilliant work.

In the meantime, don't forget to book for our show Tell Me Anything which will play at Summerhall at 5.45pm from 3-28 August.  Tickets are on sale here.

Pleasance Courtyard, 2pm
We saw an extract of Goggles at Pulse Festival’s Suitcase Day a few months ago and adored it.  A quirky comedy about Josie and Gemma’s friendship, and their pet goldfish, Sunny and Boo. 

Summerhall, 1.35pm
Songs, politics, dodgy landlords and detective work from the riotously funny and always anarchic Sh!t Theatre.

Underbelly Cowgate, 6pm
A new play about revenge porn from the award-winning team behind Bitch Boxer, including director Bryony Shanahan, who worked with us on So it Goes.

Summerhall, 2.50pm
Tackling the topic of anxiety, a rollercoaster one-woman show from our Lecoq buddies on the button.

Underbelly Cowgate, 5.30pm
Joanna is joined onstage by her father Pat, a retired builder who’s never made theatre in his life.  Pat learns to be a comedian, whilst Joanna does some honest construction work.  (I saw a work in progress of this last year and it was bloody amazing.  The description above doesn’t really do it justice.) Directed by our old friend Julian Spooner, from Rhum and Clay Theatre Company.
