“The superb Shedinburgh continues this week and one performance, Nassim Soleimanpour’s White Rabbit, Red Rabbit, has caught my eye in particular. It will be performed on Saturday night by Tobias Menzies, who plays prince Phillip in The Crown. He’s a great actor and he will need to be because Soleimanpour’s crafty piece is designed to be read sight unseen by a new actor when ever it is performed. I’ve seen it twice and can thoroughly recommend it as a piece that is original and sneaky as it examines passivioty, complicity and the nature of theatre itself. Also on as a part of Shedinburgh this Thursday is an exclusive interview with Steve Coogan.”
Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2020 is cancelled. Instead we bring you SHEDINBURGH FRINGE FESTIVAL: a brand new online festival presenting the very best of the Fringe stalwarts of theatre, music and comedy, and the best new acts, all performed live from sheds across the country and streamed into people’s homes this August.
At a time when venues face an uncertain future and artists are struggling SHEDINBURGH will shout loud about the Fringe’s vital role in global culture, celebrate its past successes and breakthrough artists and provide a platform for the talent that would have been on this year.
All proceeds raised from SHEDINBURGH ticket sales will go into a fund to support new artists to bring their work to the Edinburgh Festival in 2021 – A SHED LOAD OF FUTURE – sustaining and reinvigorating the Fringe’s future beyond this year.
