Edinburgh Festival Days 6 & 7: Me Myself Us

Click to follow
Seven days to deadline and novelist Phil Fielding is suffering major writer's block. His imagination has got up and gone. In fact, his imagination has become a separate person, and one who refuses to be coerced into writing 150,000 words in a week ('It works out as 68 postcards a day. Just think of it as a busy holiday,' pleads Phil). John McKay's jaunty piece about deadline-itis is full of good one-liners, wittily performed by McKay himself as the downbeat writer and Forbes Masson as the wilful creative streak he cannot control.

Assembly Rooms, 54 George Street (venue 3), 031 226-2428. 8pm. To 5 Sept (not 24, 31 Aug).
