12 - The Edinburgh Festival Show 2
Lauren Laverne presents an extended edition of the second of three shows from Edinburgh covering the highlights from the Festival and Fringe.
Presenting a preview of 365, the new work by The National Theatre of Scotland. The Edinburgh Festival Show has been following the work through rehearsal stages and this programme features scenes from the play, one of the most hotly anticipated shows of the International Festival.
Comedian and political activist Mark Thomas looks at some of the political art at this year's festival, concentrating on Richard Hamilton's show Protest Pictures and Sherman Cymru's documentary drama Deep Cut. Tim Samuels allows himself to be drawn into some of the numerous audience participation shows on offer, including Office Party and Faulty Towers the Dining Experience.
Lauren is joined in the Pleasance Courtyard by Chuck Palahniuk, author of Fight Club and Snuff. Another of his novels, Choke, has recently been turned into a movie with Sam Rockwell, Anjelica Huston and Kelly Macdonald. Also on the sofa this week is veteran comedian Barry Cryer, while actor and comedian Isy Suttie takes a turn with Arthur Smith on Arthur's Seat. Music this week comes from virtuoso Hungarian violinist Roby Lakatos and romantic pop outfit Wild Beasts.
Only my second rip - any feedback would be very much appreciated.
