Three to see at the Edinburgh Festival tomorrow…
Adler & Gibb | Summerhall | 5.15pm
Looking for something “highly theatrical and surprisingly gripping”? Well, this show will do it, as it “challenges the audience with its exploration of form and its visceral content”. Says our reviewer of the thought-provoking piece: “With a powerful script, compelling structure and knockout performances, ‘Adler & Gibb’ will not leave you indifferent”.

This piece of ‘documentary theatre’ about a protest movement launched by 29 young motors in Newham, East London is definitely recommended. “This is theatre at its most politically engaged and engaging”, reckoned our reviewer. “This outstanding company deliver an angry, empowering production, catalysing change”.

Finally, a long-term TW favourite and former Editors’ Award winner. “Although billing himself as a comedy act, there is something deeper to Segal’s act that encourages finding happiness in human connections and communication” says our reviewer of this year’s show. Oh, and “one feat of mind reading, conducted blindfolded, is so impossibly impressive”.
