Edinburgh Fringe / Sabotage

I’ve been up in Edinburgh and St Andrews this week, reviewing the Fringe with James Webster for Sabotage Reviews. In an exciting twist, we noticed that three of our reviews had been printed and put on the wall of the Underbelly. Probably only right and proper, as it seems we saw a disproportionate amount of shows there. I’m not going to reproduce the reviews here, but I’ll link to them, may note things in more detail later:

Day One: Dirty Great Love Story and Helen Keen: The Robot Woman of Tomorrow
Day Two: Life or Something Like It, The Static, Dating George Orwell, Mark Grist: Rogue Teacher, A Real Man’s Guide to Sainthood and Superbard Starts to Save the World
Day Three: Dream/Life, One Hour Only and The Last Fairytale
Day Four Part 1: Phill Jupitus: Porky the Poet in 27 Years On, Anthropoetry and Lucy Ayrton: Lullabies to Make Your Children Cry
Day Four Part 2: They Came With Outer Script, Other Voices: Alternative Spoken Word and Flea Circus Open Slam
Day Five: Jack and Nikki: Killing Machines, Love in the Key of Britpop, Once Upon a Time in Space, Alternative Sex Education and Jack Heal: Murderthon
Day Six Part 1: Harry Baker: Proper Pop-up Purple Paper People, Letter to the Man (from the Boy), The Man Who
Day Six Part 2: Midsummer Night’s Dream, Richard Tyrone Jones Has a Big Heart, Flea Circus Open Slam
Day Seven Part 1: Oddlie, Charlie Dupré Presents the Tales of Shakey P, Perle, Other Voices: Alternative Spoken Word
Day Seven Part 2: The Girl with No Heart, Evie and the Perfect Cupcake, Ash Dickinson @ the Inky Fingers Minifest

Tea Fuelled Edinburgh Previews – which we then saw and re-reviewed in Edinburgh. Much had changed, with things smoother.

More later, but a bit review-frazzled. Here’s Justice the Dinosaur, who joined us on our travels:
