FRINGE: Live On Air With Poet Laureate Telia Nevile – Comedy – Tuxedo Cat – 4.5K

Fans of grammar, punctuation, and the correct and effective use of the English language rejoice!

FRINGE: Jane Austen is Dead – Theatre – The Bakehouse – 4K

There were lots of gleeful giggles of recognition and several audience members nodded at various segments – presumably seeing either themselves or their friends being represented on stage. Jane Austen is Dead is an amusing evening of light entertainment, presented by a talented performer. 4K

FRINGE: His Ghostly Heart – Theatre – Holden Street Theatres – 4K

This is a distinctive theatrical experience and a fine production of a well written, thought-provoking play. The two performers create a realistic and emotive picture despite the sensory deprivation. 4K

FRINGE: Wee Andy – Theatre – Holden Street Theatres – 4.5K

This is one of those shows which remind you that truly moving theatre does not need to be complicated or flashy; the most important facets are the performances of the actors, the eloquence of the writing and the power of the story being told. Wee Andy is nothing but quality in all of these areas. 4.5K

FRINGE: Akmal – Royalty Theatre – 5K

Comedians are like wine, some never become enjoyable, no matter how long they have been aged, some have a very clear use by date after which they go down the drain and then there are those which age so well, better and better year by year. One of these well aging comedians is Akmal, even …
