So, that’s it for me this year. Despite earlier reservations that the programme looked a bit thin, once again The Edinburgh Fringe Festival delivered. And I am rather sad to be heading home.
I can really recommend FREEFALL (Corn Exchange Dublin) at the Traverse, which looks like it’s had a trim since it opened in Ireland cast year. A man sorts through events in his life after a stroke and ends up inadvertently offering something rather profound. It creeps up on you this show and then puts it’s arm around you when you feel a bit tearful.
David Leddy’s SUB ROSA is a bit rough round the edges, what isn’t in Edinburgh, but if you fancy a spot of Grand Guignol and a late night walk around a Freemason’s Lodge then give it a whirl.
I leave fiercely jealous of Ed who will be up long enough to see both TEENAGE RIOT and Daniel Kitson’s new show open – surely set to be festival highlights – and very excited about Tim Crouch’s visit to Warwick in the Autumn.
Oh… and if you find yourself on the south-side of the Meadows then Victor Hugo’s at the bottom of Livingstone Place does some of the best eggs Florentine in Edinburgh!
Lovely to see such good work, lovely to see so many old friends.
Thank you Edinburgh.
