Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2010

And we’re off.

Previews opened today in Edinburgh, but the shows that really count start tomorrow (Thursday) in the Underbelly, shortly after mid day. Clint’s Reality are up first at 12.35 in the Belly Button, followed shortly after by former WT students the Dog-Eared Collective at 15.10 in the White Belly.

Alcatraz previews a day later on Friday at 12.35 back in the Belly Button (the two Aireborne productions take alternating days, so check the press).

Fierce rivalry has already broken out with the news that Clint’s Reality is outselling Alcatraz (albeit only by four tickets).  This probably explains why an army of Alcatraz volunteers covered every inch of the city in publicity material this afternoon. Grace Staniland can be seen in the picture above, about to thrust leaflets at anyone within a three mile radius!

There are other WT connections at the Fringe… Chris Fittock (for one) is here with The Track of the Cat at C venue Chambers Street, and it’s not just performers, writers and directors. WT students are also building, stage managing, operating and organising everything from the Dome to the Royal Mile.

More soon.
