Regardless if you’re a budding thespian with the juices of Shakespeare roaring through your veins or, simply, if you’re a just looking for a good night’s entertainment – then we have the top 3 things to see at the Edinburgh fringe whilst staying at the Parliament House Hotel.
Perfect for the fans of Orange is the New Black, this piece of theatre focuses on women in prison and in true Pina Bausch, uses just chairs, a ghetto blaster and – not to be misconstrued – just four rolls of masking tape. Based on the verbatim experiences of woman in prison from the now closed Her Majesty’s Prison YOI Low Newton, near Newcastle, the play was originally toured to male prisons to incentivise behaviour, conformity and discipline.
Catch at: Northern Stage at Summerhall (Venue 26b), 12.30pm, Aug 8-11, 13-18, 20-25, 27-30.
The Red Chair
A debilitating tale focusing on one man challenge with food, the woman who cooks to his demise and the children that are never seen on stage. Audience participation by ways of eating takes place, with the opportunity for a dram with your ticket. Although sounding bizarre yet interesting, The Red Chair makes for a feast of the senses.
Catch at: Summerhall Demonstration Room, 10am, 24 – 30 Aug
Critically acclaimed one-woman show, One-dog hit Major Tom’s Victoria Melody returns to the fringe with a study of the international business of human hair. Fascinating in its own right, she meets with hair dealers in rural Russia, a real life baddie and a contestant on India’s version of Celebrity Big Brother for a tale of hair extensions like no other.
Catch at: Pleasance Courtyard, Pleasance Below, 1pm – 2pm, Aug 8 – 31 August
