Katharine Ferns: In Stitches, 7pm, £5

Brutally funny and unflinchingly honest, “In Stitches” is the latest Fringe hit from Canadian comedian Katharine Ferns. takes audiences through the visible and invisible scars of surviving mental illness, domestic violence, and drug addiction — with some feminism thrown in for comic relief. Based on true events from her own life, the story begins on April 21, 2016 — the day Prince passed away and Katharine ended up in stitches (literally). Through personal insights and a lot of laughs, Katharine’s acclaimed solo show leaves her audiences in stitches (figuratively).
