4.3 Miles From Nowhere

Young company Fine Chisel claim A Winter’s Tale as an influence on their Fringe debut, although with two sets of teenage lovers and a Puckish meddler lost in the woods, A Midsummer Night’s Dream also looms large. There are absolutely no dramatic stakes at all here, but the performances are good and a brilliant live folk band is woven cleverly in. Remember their name: they’ll go on to make great work.

Zoo, 662 6892, until 29 Aug, 3pm, £8 (£7).

They’re lost. There’s no phone signal. And the tent’s missing a pole. Inspired by The Winter’s Tale, makers of Firing Blanks. ‘Simply outstanding’ ★★★★★ (AllTheFestivals.com) present a comic tale of growing up and getting lost in the countryside, featuring a dynamic blend of poetry, puppetry, movement and live folk music.
