The Edinburgh Fringe: A Student Showcase

Published in The Orbital Magazine

17th September 2013

The most vivacious and exciting arts festival on the planet, The Edinburgh Fringe is a place like no other. More than tripling the Scottish capital’s population and brining performers, directors, journalists and audience members together in one place for twenty-five days of the year is a remarkable spectacle to witness first hand.

EDINBURGH FRINGE REVIEW – Will You Hold My Hand?

Underbelly, Cowgate

We Are Goose

To call this show a musical comedy is like calling improv “method acting”. Will You Hold My Hand? at the Underbelly Cowgate is a biographical performance detailing the life story of John Hunter, a man with, albeit, an intriguing life but certainly not one worthy of an Edinburgh Fringe Production.
