I’ve seen about forty shows so far at this year’s Fringe Festival in Edinburgh. The six shows I have given high ratings to have been at the Traverse and the Pleasance theatres. The best shows I have seen so far:

At the Traverse:

1. Mouse

2. Diary of a Madman

3. My Eyes Went Dark

At the Pleasance:

1. Krapp 39

2. Swansong

3. Bucket List

The worst shows have been Sweet Child of Mine (walked out about halfway through), Cut, The Last Dream on Earth (a big bore) and Blank (ultimately shallow and banal)
