The Forecast: Benji’s Picks

This year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe is set to be the largest yet, with 3,193 shows playing in almost 300 venues. With so much choice, where do you start? Never fear! In this series, the Fringebiscuit team dives headlong into the gargantuan Edfringe guide to find the most exciting shows on offer…

Man Enough, Laughing Horse @ The Phoenix.  A young man intent on a journey of sexual conquest but love comes when you least expect it. Themes of sex, drugs and friendship accompanied by original live music should make for a provocative piece

Lieutenant of Inishmore, Hill Street Drama Lodge. A show so absurdly bloody you may consider wearing your rain jacket and boots. In this show even the most dangerous of terrorists loves his cat to death.

The Babysitters, C CubedThrust Stage. A mafia boss has two of his henchman babysit for him. What could go wrong?

Chris is Dead, theSpace on the mile. Dead people can be really inconvenient. Described as “awkwardly funny”  and “shamelessly honest,” expect some pure dark humor.

Frankenstein Unbolted, Just the Tonic at The Caves. You can’t go wrong with pop music and a good-looking “charm your pants off” monster. You just can’t.
