Recommended shows at Edinburgh

Shows I’ve seen and recommend

An Oak Tree by Tim Crouch at the Traverse. It’s a moving, clever, meditation on grief.
Snuff by Davey Anderson at the Traverse. Fast paced, menancing Glasgow lowlife; also comments on the wider violence in today’s world ie Iraq.
Daniel Kiston in stand up at the Stand Up Comedy Club or his story telling: Stories for the Wobbly Hearted at the Traverse. Quirky, wonderful, funny, extremely well told, modern day love & loneliness fables.

Shows I’d recommend on strength of reputation, hearsay or interest:

Chris Goode and Signal to Noise’s: Home Made -it’s performed in yourown home or space, call 07914 629851
Ben Harrison and Grid Iron’s piece, The Devil’s Larder, set in the actual Edinburgh Debenham’s.

Other things to do:
go and see some puppets and children’s shows almost always interesting,
go and see some outdoor shows (the one in the botantical gardens: Children of the Sea is meant to be good),
try some “visual, physical theatre”, some thing strange sounding, things that won’t be coming to your howm town
go and see photographer Cartier-Bresson, artist Paula Rego and the Francis Bacon exibition.
