Ideas for the Edinburgh Fringe Survival Guide - Live 1

SHOULD the show be more than a discussion? Should I turn up in white face paint and Victorian costume in solidarity with a 100 student theatre companies? Should I have a flipchart with a tally of everything I've spent and earned? Should I start with a song from a Fringe band?

Maybe, maybe not.

Here's an initial list of ideas for the daily discussions:

  • Actors
  • Administrators 
  • Comedians
  • Directors
  • Editors
  • Musicians
  • Playwrights
  • Producers
  • Publicists
  • Reviewers
  • Venue managers
  • More from the book
