Kicking off the afternoon to evening, in the beautiful walled suntrap of a pub garden, was the Scottish Falsetoo Sock Puppet Theatre, who will be performing their show "Scottish Falsetoo Sock Puppets Do Shakespeare" at the Fringe every day from 3 to 29 August, with no show on 23 August, at 10.30pm Gilded Balloon Teviot for £5. The best way of describing the show is a one-man adult Scottish Punch and Judy show with socks, full of bad but very funny Bard related puns and hilarious original and re-worded songs, including my favourites "Fuck Up Some Shakespeare" and a unique version of Blur's "Boys and Girls", plus plays and a sonnet performed as never before. Highly recommended for those who are still children at heart and agree Shakespeare comedies are not funny enough.
