The Forecast: Alexandra’s Picks

Still reeling from the colossal size of this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe guide? Not to worry, Fringebiscuit is here for you! We can’t wait to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Edfringe by tucking into more performances than ever before. In fact, we’re so keen, here’s a preview of some of the shows that have caught our writers’ eyes ahead of time…

Ava Beaux: The Mysterious Tales of Poe

Though not the biggest fan of magic acts, I am excited to see what a magician will do with the Gothic stories of my favourite author, Edgar Allan Poe.

The Street, August 6, 8-13, 15-20, 22-26

Buried: A New Musical by Colla Voce Theatre

A love story about murderous psychopaths…sounds amazing already! I am interested to see how they can make a musical about something so ironic and dark.

C Venues – C Too, August 3-28

Aaaaaaargh! Macbeth…Without the Shakespeare Bollocks

A perplexing historical stand up piece. How can you have Macbeth without Shakespeare? How can you make it comedic? I’m not entirely sure, but I’m very curious and would like to know.

The Stand Comedy Club 5 & 6, August 3-13, 15-27

And Then There Were None

You have not experienced a mystery until you sit through on of Agatha Christie’s classics. This will require every ounce of deduction you have in your being, and I am very excited to see how well it will be performed. Dare I say, what I am most excited for.

Greenside @ Nicolson Square, August 21-26

Fine, Thanks by LUND

As a person who suffers from mental health conditions, I wonder how well they will be able to use real words of sufferers into a plot and music in this verbatim musical.

C Venues – C, August 20-27
