Everything I saw at the Edinburgh Fringe

This is not yet the proper blog about Edinburgh Fringe. This is more of a list.

I am putting a star next to my top five. Not as in ‘one star’ – as in an asterisk.  Also ‘Bullet Catch’ and ‘Mies Julie’ are brilliant, you could recommend them to anyone. ‘Detention’ is fun but I wouldn’t bother with it unless you are there with kids. Some of the others are very good, just not life changing and a couple not really up my street. If you want to know what I thought about any of them ask below, or just share what you thought. I’ll probably only blog in more depth about the two at Summerhall that blew my mind.
