In his new play Edith in the Dark, playwright Philip Meeks has combined the unusual life and some of the lesser-known adult ghost stories of Edith Nesbit, celebrated author of children's classics such as The Railway Children, Five Children and It and The Phoenix and the Carpet. It will be at Momentum Playhouse at St Stephens in Edinburgh from 7 to 30 August with previews on 5 and 6.

Les Enfants Terribles co-founder James Seager tells us all about the successful company's latest production, Marvellous Imaginary Menagerie, which will return to Edinburgh at Pleasance Beyond from 5 to 31 August.

Guy Masterson, probably the best-known and most successful Edinburgh Fringe producer, director and actor, will perform Dylan Thomas The Man, The Myth with Thomas's granddaughter Hannah Ellis from 6 to 22 August and a cut-down version of his one-man Under Milk Wood, sub-titled Semi-Skimmed, from 23 to 31 August, both at Assembly Roxy. He tells us about both productions and shatters a few myths about the great Welsh post.
