Edinburgh Festival `98: Theatre Dominic Cavendish

ALEX LOWE'S one-man-show, The Wrestling - based on Simon Garfield's book of the same name - is a humorous, affectionate tribute to a toppled giant of a sport which manages to avoid sentimentality even as it headlocks you into a state of nostalgia. Anecdotes about Kendo Nagasaki, Mick McManus, Big Daddy (right) and many more delivered with ringside fervour.

Pleasance, Edinburgh (0131-556 6550) 12.10pm

A Little Requiem for Kantor pays homage to the legendary Polish director Tadeusz Kantor: an oddly enchanting tangle of bandage, broken umbrellas, muttered laments and a soaring classical score.
