Good one, I’d been meaning to start a thread on this! I’m up for a few days (17th-19th) and booked a bunch of tickets at the weekend:
Gigless (Catherine Bohart/Helen Bauer’s night)
Rosy Carrick’s new show Musclebound (theatre, she did one a few years ago about time travel that was brilliant)
Alexandra Haddow (Free Fringe)
Sooz Kempner (Free Fringe)
Not seeing Catherine Bohart or Kiri Pritchard-Mclean cos I caught their own tours but I would do if I hadn’t.
Definitely looking for some more recommendations! I might see Rob Auton and Helen Bauer but equally can catch them here on their regular tours in a few months.
Really annoyed at the lack of a Half Price Hut this year, still got a lot of time to fill and I was planning on using that for a lot of it.
been a few of the shows in the last couple of weeks, favourites were…
at swim two birds- caitriona dowden and nate kitch
wasn’t keen on jacob hawley’s show about how he’s getting more right wing, without mentioning how beneficial an angle this can be for his career like geoff norcott. students support the rail strikers because they “haven’t got anywhere to be” is it, thinking the disruption is fault of striking workers.
We’re off for four and a bit days. It’s so expensive that we go for a short time and meticulously squeeze in as many shows as can. 27 in total on this occasion, and our time there crosses the 2 for 1 days as well.
We got 2 days planned for it and likely head to see Deerhoof too, who are playing the 28th, just not bought tickets for that one yet. Also still looking to see if I can replace Ian Lynam and Glenn Moore, as i found that 15:00-17:00 spot a tricky one to find anything I fancied; I’ll keep checking people’s suggestions here hoping to find something that works.
