Episode three of Festival City stays in Glasgow (outrageous!), or at least meets a couple of artists who are either from or living on the West Coast. They are still, of course, at the Fringe during August.

First up, there is more Vile conversations with the National Theatre of Scotland: this time, Graham Eatough dives into the problems of making theatre as he reveals the process behind How to Act. Musical interludes come from the new musical, The Local, featuring songs about that subject dear to all critics at the Fringe – the pub.

Gareth then decides to 'indulge himself' by giving his opinions on what he wants to see, and goes on and on about clowns... before the show is rescued by the arrival of a comedian Rachel Jackson. Gareth asks her for some dating advice, even though she is a bit of a Bunny Boiler.

Rachel Jackson: Bunny Boiler

  • 2 stars

Debut hour from Rachel Jackson, that's a wee bit biography, a wee bit therapy session.

How to Act

  • 3 stars

How to Act explores the contemporary realities of personal, cultural and economic exploitation through two individuals drawn together in the world of theatre. Both believe in truth, but each has their own version of it.
