|My dog-eared Fringe programme|
While the scope of the festival includes theater, comedy, dance, music and spoken word, we are focusing on theater performances. Long before we committed to going to EdFringe, Wendi had figured out that Lyn Gardner, theater critic for the Guardian newspaper, writes an annual article about what she's looking forward to seeing at that year's Festival. It seemed as good a place to start as any. So with Gardner's column in hand--which mentioned around 80 shows--we began our plan of attack.

Never having heard of any of the theater groups or actors before, I am hoping for at least a 50% hit ratio of shows we really enjoy. (Wendi was familiar with two shows/actors.) Here are the descriptions of a few of the shows I'm particularly looking forward to:
I suspect that I won't have time to blog while I'm away, but I do plan to tweet my reactions to shows. If you're interested in following me, my Twitter handle is Nanettecrist17. Will report back upon my return!
