Wales at the Edinburgh Fringe20190809

The Review Show goes on the road this month for a special edition exploring some of the key Welsh productions at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Presenter Gary Raymond is joined by guest critics Pauline McLean - former Western Mail Arts Editor and now Arts Correspondent for BBC Scotland - and music writer Susan Nickalls of The Scotsman.

The panel review Dirty Protest Theatre's hi-energy bittersweet one-woman show How to Be Brave - starring Laura Dagleish and billed as "a love story to Newport". National Theatre Wales' production For All I Care - which formed part of the company's artistic celebration of the NHS's 70th birthday - is also featured, with Hinterland and Keeping Faith actor Hannah Daniel on compelling form.

The critics give their verdict on Daf James' powerful new work On The Other Hand We're Happy. A co-production between Theatr Clwyd and Paines Plough, the play explores the complex issues surrounding adoption.

And the panel review Do Our Best, written and performed by Chepstow-born actor Remy Beasley. In this ebullient comedy with a dark twist, we see Beasley play self-obsessed Sephie, who finds herself back in the sanctuary of the Girl Guides following the death of her mother. Among her survival tactics as life unravels, is attempting to pass her Entertainers Badge for the fourth time.

Gary also finds time to squeeze in some stand-up with a Welsh/Spanish flavour as he catches up with comedian Ignacia Lopez.

Gary Raymond and his guests cast a critical eye on what's going in in the Welsh arts scene

Monthly review of the Welsh arts scene.
