Making a spectacle of yourself
THE EDINBURGH Festival Fringe is so amazingly big that there’s room for just about any kind of performance you can conceive of. That’s the good news.
It’s also true some things are a better fit than others. So this chapter of the The Edinburgh Fringe Survival Guide looks at the kind of things that do well and the kind of things that
struggle. It also considers the different challenges facing different types of performance from amdram to stand-up, from children’s shows to foreign-language theatre.
Fringe luminaries including Assembly’s William Burdett-Coutts, the Pleasance’s Anthony Alderson, Underbelly’s Charlie Wood, director Suzanne Andrade, playwright Ella Hickson, producer Dana MacLeod and comedian Ed Byrne are among those sharing their advice.
