Betrayal, blood, madness and murder flood the back streets and closes of Edinburgh's Old Town in this innovative walking performance of the Scottish play in which we become accomplices in 's course of violent self-destruction.

At Last! War, Death, Famine and Pestilence

You know these people - you live next door to some of them, but you probably never realised just how funny they could be until now.

Greg Proops

The Assembly Rooms, Venue 3, 8.30pm, pounds 9

The acclaimed ringmaster of sarcastic one-liners, his new one-man show is sure to be a sell-out

X-Rated Revue

Sickos, weirdos, priests and Friends all converge to re-define black humour.
