Top Tips on the Edinburgh Festival Fringe

The Edinburgh Festival Fringe is the world’s largest arts festival, with over 50,000 performances of 3,279 shows in nearly 300 venues across the city in 2016. It is held in August every year, and it is really never too early to start planning for the Fringe! There are so many things to consider: What type of venue is best for your show? City center or out of the main action? How do you promote it? How do you compete with the thousands of other shows appearing at the Fringe? Honestly, the top tip really is to ENJOY the Edinburgh Festival Fringe! The diversity, quality, and eccentricity on display is amazing. There really is nothing like it!

Community: A Theatrical Necessity

Community engagement must be a part of every theatre-making process. There is no theatre without an audience. The audience is as much a part of a play-making experience as the artists—so how do we incorporate them more actively into what we do? We must work with them – and I’ve learned, in so doing, that working with the community teaches me just as much or more about the play on which I’m working than anything I do in the rehearsal room or on stage.
