Paines Plough at the Edinburgh Fringe: a week in the life

As the festival draws to a close we ask theatre company Paines Plough to show us what they've been up to

The Edinburgh Fringe may almost be over now, with a month of flyering, feasting and general festivity coming to a saddening close. But we thought we'd take a look at the manic and show-filled life of the three performers involved in Paines Plough's Roundabout season at Summerhall. Charlotte O'Leary, Katherine Pearce, Jack Wilkinson are performing in two performances a day, with three shows (Island Town, Sticks and Stones and How to Spot an Alien) on rotation as part of the festival. We check in with the three to see how they've been faring.
