…to a Scottish getaway and immersive theatre experience at
EDINBURGH FRINGE THEATRE FESTIVAL
August 10-20, 2022
Covid-19 upended both the 2020 and the 2021 season, but I’m excited to be planning for 2022!
The Edinburgh fringe was–and hopefully will be again– the largest and most influential theatre festival in the world. In 2019 alone, the city hosted over 4,000 shows at 240 venues across the city.
The festival showcases cutting edge, international, contemporary work in a variety of genres–including comedy, physical theatre, music, and dance. There is literally something for everyone! Alternative theatre performances run simultaneously with The Edinburgh International Arts Festival, the International Book Festival, and International Art Exhibitions.
Edinburgh is itself a tourist paradise. The Royal Mile, lined with shops and pubs, connects the Palace of Holyrood on one end to the city’s centerpiece: a medieval castle perched high on a cliff of ancient volcanic rock. Overlooking the city is a spectacular crag known as Arthur’s Seat—a great place for a morning hike. The National Scottish Library, National History Museum, National Art Gallery, the new Scottish Parliament, and the Royal Botanic Gardens are all free and worth a visit.
