Edinburgh Fringe!

It’s official, I love the Edinburgh Fringe!  The energy level in the city is fantastic over 2000 productions are vying for your attention.  I was there for two and a half whirlwind days and saw eleven shows.  The list below is in order of my enjoyment and runs from Blam! at #1 which was fan-bloody-tastic to Man in the Moone which I frankly didn’t understand and thought was awful.

If you have never been to the Fringe I highly recommend you go.  This year my trip was a bit too brief.  Last year I did five days and I think an ideal length of stay is probably four days. Edinburgh is a lovely city and the work you will see will range from the sublime to the ridiculous.

  1. Blam!
  2. The Boy With Tape On His Face
  3. Titus
  4. Smashed
  5. Mike Oldfield’s Tubular Bells ‘For Two’
  6. Gamarjobat
  7. Crying Out Loud presents Flown
  8. Aliens Love Underpants
  9. Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs
  10. A Story of a Man and His Shadow
  11. Man in the Moone

Unfortunately I missed One Giant Leap as I was a few minutes late to the venue and they wouldn’t let me in.

I would like to give a shout out to the Arts Industry Office, with a special mention for Louise and Hannah.  Also to Stephen Makin for sorting me out at the Abattoir.

I can’t wait for next year!
