2015 Episode 1

Hi all!

Welcome back to Hanging at the Fringe for 2015. I’m happy to report that we are now an officially accredited media outlet, which is a huge step!

This year, we’re doing things a bit differently. I am gathering groups of people together to have a longer discussion about the Fringe, and then of course talk a bit about their shows. This first episode is all local performers – we talk a bit about what it’s like to be a local during the Fringe, but a bunch of other things too!

As is becoming tradition, we had a technical hiccup on the first podcast of the year. This time, it was a low battery problem, so we miss a bit of Calum’s introduction, but not to worry, all his information is below, along with everyone else’s!

David Grimes (@tiggrzz) was representing EGTG (@TheGrads) who are doing two shows this year: The Witch of Edmonton and Death and The Maiden. You can find more information about the company at www.egtg.co.uk, or find them on Facebook at The Grads.

Lindsay Corr (@irishcoi) was representing the Scottish Storytelling Centre (@ScotStoryScntre) who have lots of shows on at the Fringe! You can find info about all of their various events here.

Calum Lykan (@talesntours) is doing a show called Brave & Free: Traditional Tales of Scotland. Check it out if you want a taste of some traditional stories.

Emily Aboud was representing EUSOG (@EUSOG) who are doing Little Shop of Horrors this year – family friendly (kinda) with a cool plant! You can find more info about the show at www.littleshopofhorrorfringe.com.

Lastly, Catherine Wilson (@CJMacBeathW) and Doug Garry (@BeardedPipe) were representing the Loud Poets (@LOUDPOETS) who are doing a show called Loud Poets (surprise!) every night at the Storytelling Centre.

Thanks for tuning in! Don’t forget to share, and check back next week for another episode.

Episode 4 – Hanging out with the Chaucer Gang

Hello listeners,

Today, I got to spend time with four of the people involved in a show called Chaucer: Hold Up Your Tale. In the episode, we discuss the experience of being at the Fringe with the “veterans” of the group, and the expectations of the “newbies.” We also talked about their show, and how they have woven three different Chaucer tales, told in three different style, into one show.

Go and check them out! The show is on August 6 – 10 only at C Nova at 12:05pm. You can get tickets here:
