"What excited me about Fringe TheatreFest?

Hmmm. The sense of 'the underground'. The sense of a lively subculture. The sense of a DIY art space. The artistic work of course!

I liked the way you were free to dip in and out of work, chat, socialise.

It's wonderful to see the real fringe happening at last!"
