What’s on Edinburgh’s Stages This Week:

It’s a big big week of variety for Allan Stewart, legendary panto dame at the King’s, who has announced both that this week’s Big Big Variety show will be his last – he’s turning 70, so little surprise there – and also that he will be taking on the role of Mother Superior when Sister Act comes to the Festival Theatre in May 2021.
