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…
My top four shows:
Dizney Rascal, Fingers Piano Bar. Although problematically dream-shattering to my own Disney princess aspirations, I look forward to this contemporary and promisingly entertaining solo production.
The Accidentals: 99 Problems But a Pitch Ain’t One, theSpace @ Symposium Hall. I’ll admit I’m jumping onto the a cappella bandwagon a little late, but with rave reviews and surrounding buzz, seeing this award-winning performance sounds like a given.
In Cahoots: Some Like It Hoots, St John’s. After watching their hilarious sketches “The Jealous Boyfriend” and “What Conversations Really Mean”, I can’t wait to see how hysterical these two are when performing live. This comedy-sketch duo has received five-star reviews and is clearly not to be missed.
Half Baked, Laughing Horse @ The Counting House. This female double act has been described as providing a “collection of sketches that mercilessly explode female archetypes”. Entertaining and refreshing, what more could one possibly ask for?
