We Recommend

Ubu on the table

By Theatre de la Pire Espece
3-28 August - Summerhall

All the grotesqueness of the world on a table! Created in 1998, performed more than 750 times in North America and Europe, this award-winning adaptation of Alfred Jary’s Ubu Roi makes its UK debut at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Come and meet Père Ubu!

A Man Standing

By Théâtre de l’Ancre
5-14 August - Summerhall

The play tells the true story of Jean-Marc Mahy, a man who spent 19 years in prison, three of them in solitary confinement. This powerful play goes beyond artistic considerations and has been recognised for its public utility by the French Ministry of Culture.

Christine Bovill’s Paris

12,13&15, 18-21 August
The Famous Spiegeltent

Christine Bovill’s unforgettable voice plunges us back to the golden age of French song, in the poetic and romantic atmosphere of le Paris des années 50. From Brel to Aznavour, from Piaf to Barbara, her show is a pure delight.
