With over 3000 shows at the world’s biggest arts festival, here at The ReviewsHub,we want to make the job of choosing your Edinburgh Festival Fringe shows that little bit easier. So here’s Inspector Sands of The Lounge answering our annual Five Fast Fringe Questions.
In one sentence, tell us about your show.
Set in a care home off the A1, The Loungeis a dangerously unstable farce about growing old
What made you decide to bring a show this year?
You can’t beat a Fringe audience. Our last shows, Hysteria and If That’s All There Is were both a hit with Festival crowds, so we’re hoping for a repeat this year.
Any advice you’ve heard or can give to anyone coming to the Fringe for the first time?
Take shoes you’re happy to wear into the ground. Go to Piemaker for cheap, delicious pies. Make sure you go up Arthur’s Seat at least once.
What makes your show stand out from all of the others on offer?
Not many shows will feature actors playing characters in their late nineties. It’s physically tough, even though we don’t move much!
What show, other than your own, do you not want to miss?
There are a few new companies this year we’re really looking forward to seeing…impossible to pick one.May We Go Around by the Hiccup Project, Goggles by This Egg and How to Win Against History by Seriol Davies are all set to be brilliant. 600 People by Third Angel is also a must book.
Finally, the boring but essential bit…
