Top Fringe Picks: Day 8

Why does it always rain on me?!

It’s raining men, hallelujah, it’s raining men

Purple rain, purple rain…

Raindrops keep falling on my head, they keep falling

Let the rain fall down and wake my dreams

Feel the rain on your skin, no one else can feel it for you

I’m singing in the rain, just singing in the rain…

Today is widely known at the Fringe as “black Wednesday” – it’s the day after all the 2-for-1s and it’s the hardest day to sell tickets – so if there weren’t many people in your audience today, don’t be disheartened!  We had a lovely intimate audience at Captured today (12.40pm @ Underbelly Cowgate).  Only 17 shows left! Here are our next recommendations to keep you coping in the rain:

Bricking It – Joanna Griffin 5.30pm @ Underbelly Cowgate

Actor Liam says: “The consummate pro Joanna takes to the stage for the first time with a hilarious, 73 year old rookie named Pat (who also happens to be her Dad). One of the most enjoyable experiences I’ve had at the fringe so far.” 

3 words to sum up: Refreshing, Heart-warming, & Unique.

Are We Stronger Than Winston? – VOU Fiji Dance 10pm @ Greenside, Nicolson Square

Stage Manager Shanice says: “This exceptional piece is about the devastating cyclone that hit Fiji and the affects that it has had on the people.  Told through dance, this piece is stunning, overwhelming and courageous, and definitely worth a watch.  The performers were unbelievably dedicated and astounding.”

3 words to sum up: Unusual, Breathtaking, & Stand-Out.

Torch –  Flipping the Bird 8.50pm @ Underbelly Cowgate

Director Suzy says: “Jess Mabel Jones is an incredible engaging talented performer who keeps you hooked on her story from beginning to end.  She knows how to own a stage and she makes you feel like you’re up there with her.”

3 words to sum up: Electric, Exuberating & Passionate.

What would you recommend seeing this fringe? Let us know in the comments below or tweet us @WhiteSlateUK.

We will be performing Captured again tomorrow (12.40pm @ Underbelly Cowgate) 3 words to sum it up: Beautifully composed & emotionally authentic (sorry, a lovely written review from Three Weeks this morning has meant we’ve cheekily gone for 4 words!)
