Three to see at the Edinburgh Festival tomorrow…
Superwomen Of Science – Minerva Scientifica | Valvona & Crolla | 1.00pm
Have a read of the Q&A at the top of today’s TW Daily and then go and see the show! “A twenty-first century show, portraying notable but neglected historical women scientists”, our reviewer explains, “with music from contemporary female composers and an electronic soundscape. These women deserve recognition – come and meet them”. Indeed they do, and indeed you should.

A real stand out in the Fringe’s theatre programme this year. “Filipa Bragança is phenomenal as a brave young Syrian girl searching for her father”, notes our review. “Important, frightening, and happening now, ‘Angel’ reminds us that the atrocities some of our generation are living through are not that far away”.
The Blind Date Project | Zoo Southside | 10.00pm
This show “reveals the voyeuristic pleasure of watching intimacy develop between two strangers” says our reviewer, who notes that nothing is scripted here but “the key to the show is the brilliant production, which guarantees quality and spontaneity. The pace doesn’t lag, there’s humour and a surprising sense of realness to the evening”. Go see.
