FOR the seventh year, Not The Edinburgh Festival will bring some of the potential highlights of the world's greatest theatre festival to Bath. The festival runs from July 20-29 in the Ustinov Studio at the Theatre Royal. It opens with a one night only appearance from Edinburgh Fringe favourites David Benson and Lizzie Roper.The event continues with Chas Early and Richard Hurst's latest production, Moon the Loon, which tells the story of rock legend Keith Moon and his struggle to overcome personal demons that threatened to destroy his band, love life and sanity.Laurence Clark will then present his new show, Jim Fixed It For Me, a hard hitting but unsentimental view of living with cerebral palsy.The festival closes with a comedy about a bankrupt film company which invites members of the audience into the set to watch as the company attempts to prevent global meltdown. This production comes from newcomers to the festival, Bare Bawds Productions, and mixes mirth and hilarity with a dark message.Tickets, priced from £5-9, are available from the box office on 01225 448844.
