2013 Edinburgh Preview ShowsHighbury & Islington's tiny 54-seat fringe theatre Hen & Chickens is a wonderful spot to watch a play or a stand-up show - and the intimate venue is putting on an interesting array of Edinburgh Preview Shows from little known sketch troupes to heavyweight comedy regulars. Talking of which, Deborah Frances-White's fringe hit Voices In Your Head returns to London, but this time with special guest Phil Jupitus taking to the stage ahead of a run in Edinburgh (Monday 8th July). Sam Savage: Princess Savage (Saturday 29th June) features quirky gags and stories from the Funny's Funny Winner 2012 and New Act Of The Year Runner-up 2013. Kieran Hodgson's Flood (Saturday 22nd June) is a character comedy about the Lincolnshire town of Gainsborough as its inhabitants struggle to survive the biggest flood in the town's history. Also on the programme is some offbeat humour from Ingrid Dahle and Paul Jones in Dahle and Jones On A Plate (Wednesday 26th June) and some sketch show funniness with In Cahoots on Sunday 14th July and The Leeds Tealights on Monday 29th July. Tickets start at £6.50. Visit www.henandchickens.com for more information.
