100-Word Fringe: “Tonight Sandy Grierson Will Lecture, Dance And Box” at Assembly George Square

An entirely unexpected and pleasurable – if faulty – trip through history, Sandy Grierson takes a look at his great-grandfather Arthur Craven. He was a pauper, a prince, a poet, a prize fighter, and any number of people and personalities in between. The facts of the matter may be up for debate – and Grierson’s intense avowal that “this is the truth” somewhat undermines the show’s camaraderie – but the journey is well worth it. With an easy, involving audience interaction and surely one of the best uses of origami this festival, Grierson’s show is flawed but ambitious, and necessary.

Tonight Sandy Grierson Will Lecture, Dance And Box is playing at Assembly George Square until August 28th.

Tickets: £13 (£12)
