Straight from selling out in London comes a King's Head Theatre play by Joe Dipietro. F*cking Men is a modern interpretation of Schnitzler's 19th-century play La Ronde. A play which caused great controversy at the time now retold through the lives of men who have sex with other men. Gay, Straight, Married, and Escorts, all interlinking characters have one connecting trait, they all agree "Why does any dude have sex with strangers? Because it feels fanfuckingtastic" as one character puts it. Three actors play the multi-character script, switching between roles like a well-oiled machine. Each is skilled and versatile, even though some very unnecessary badly chosen accents can leave you distracted.EDINBURGH 2016 - BWW Review: BRIEFS FACTORY PRESENTS: SWEATSHOP, Underbelly's Circus Hub on the Meadows, 12 August August 15, 2016

History class at school can be a marmite subject to many. Covering historical moments and movements of great importance do heighten our ability to evaluate events of today, but many can feel like a task rather than a joy. Thankfully the Edinburgh Fringe can provide extra curriculum knowledge that opens our eyes to historical figures that you wish you had heard of decades ago.EDINBURGH 2016 - BWW Review: THE TAP PACK, Assembly George Square Theatre, 11 August August 14, 2016
