Another three-hander tackling science head-on, this time from a real scientist. After a succession of novels, Carl Djerassi, who synthesised the Pill in 1951, has turned his hand to a play. An Immaculate Misconception - which looks at the latest in-vitro fertilisation treatments - promises to be an alternative to the usual fluff of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, which is now under way.
