Edinburgh Festival Fringe Experience?
« on: Oct 15, 2009, 03:52 pm »

I'm stage managing for this great play called "The Meeting" and we're going to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August. Stage managing is not my expertise or anything, I'm just reasonably organized and I love this play. So, I'm really trying to make this trip possible for my cast (two actors have never acted before!) and wanted to know if anyone has had experience with the Fringe fest. My teacher has gone (my director) before and I'm reading through the documents he had from last time, but I wanted to hear some of your experiences.

Right now I'm figuring out the cheapest possible place to stay from the 6th of August until the 30th. We'd rather not stay in a hostel since generally You pack up your stuff like each day (or so I'm told). Anyway, I've been looking at flats and university dorms etc.

Any experience with these sorts of festivals I'd love to hear about. I've personally never traveled far from Maryland so it's all new to me. Any tips!? stories? thanks!!! :D
