New review: Week one at the Edinburgh Fringe

// 9 August 2012

This month, we’ll be reviewing productions at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the largest arts festival in the world

LOVE CHILD anna cheney chrissie oage 02.jpgDuring August, Edinburgh becomes a mass of shows and excitement as people and productions flock to the annual Fringe Festival, as well as the numerous other festivals going on at the same time. It’s an exhilarating atmosphere, with lots of new writing and amateur actors getting their first exposure, and the output is extremely diverse.

With all these shows going on, there are a huge number that are interesting from a feminist perspective, whether it’s because of the topic they are tackling or the number of women involved in the production. We decided to review as many of these shows as we could, and post them in four installments throughout the month. There are literally hundreds more that we won’t be able to review – go to the official website to browse all of them – but hopefully we’ll pull out some things that are worth thinking about.

This week, we’ve reviewed shows about an artist’s muse, a dead Japanese emperor’s concubines, the Dominique Strauss-Kahn case, and more!
