On the Fringe

24 Aug

I just returned from Edinburgh — a fairy-tale city. It happened to be the annual Fringe Festival. It’s a visual treat and celebration of arts and culture. The entire city participates from street performers to live plays to booths selling books, fashion and art. Artists and authors are abound in this cabaret setting.

What’s the best selling point? It’s for the entire family — all ages. I personally went to see Kafka for Kids with my granddaughter. Yes, it was a Kafkaesque experience — fun, delightful and meaningful. (Not sure Franz had that in mind!)

The New York Times reports the 2018 Carol Tambor Best of Edinburgh Award is the play Ulster American by David Ireland. The play ponders “how men are reacting to a world in which women are increasingly empowered.”

This play was one of 1,000 plays from the Fringe this summer. For more award news from the New York Times, please click here.

If you love theater and culture, the 2019 Fringe Festival should be on your travel wish list.
