3 brilliant Edinburgh Fringe shows to see in London
Some great Edinburgh Fringe shows are heading to London, here are three I saw that I can highly recommend.
The Fishermen, Arcola (until 1 December)
Based on a Man-booker listed novel, The Fishermen is about four brothers who go fishing somewhere they aren't supposed to and the consequences of that fateful night.
It is fast-paced, the narrative rich with detail, the characters beautifully drawn.

Ladykiller, Pleasance Theatre (30 Nov - 1 Dec)
A hotel room, a dead body, a maid covered in blood with a knife in her hand. This isn’t what it looks like, it definitely isn’t.
'Her' is a perverse figurehead for female empowerment and it is that contradiction and the darkness that I loved.

Angry Alan, Soho Theatre (5-30 March 2019)
An ordinary American man comes across a men's rights campaigner who seems to have answers to all his problems. It won awards at the Fringe and for good reason.
You'll laugh, scoff and roll your eyes at the irony of what Roger says but the final blow is a tragic irony.
