Whats happened to Ed Fringe?!

I've been frequenting Edinburgh Fringe for the past four years and it's never failed to deliver, but more and more its prowess has been lessening, and this year it almost hit rock bottom.

 

This year, it seems, prices for theatre, on the whole, had gone up at least 15% from previous years. Previous years unknowns seemed more eager to claw audiences through the door charging a neat and healthy price of £5 or less, lessening the audience’s part in the risk we're all asked to take…

This is not a paid job, as the event is being organised to promote theatre criticism in Wales and the Burton panel will be one of four that will…

If you go down to the woods today...

It's week 5 of our rehearsal process and our first full week in Wepre Park. It's been crazy, wet, muddy, tiring and lots of fun! I love being outdoors; I know this will be quite an extraordinary production for cast, crew and especially the poor, unsuspecting members of the public :)

Yesterday we had a full run in costume. Many people stopped to have a look; a little baffled as to why there was Super Girl, a man in a pink fur coat, a mermaid and many other strange beings running in and…
