Fringe2012 - Noel Cowards Brief Encounter (Still-life) , High St, Royal Mile, Edinburgh City, Scotland UK
View a whole set of Fringe 2012 madness from Edinburgh Scotland here. If you do Twitter add me here.

August, always a mad busy crazy time in Edinburgh, during the festival and fringe, which seems to have grown even bigger than the tattoo and festival. There's no shortage of talent and thesps here!.

This piece of four star contemporary, drama theatre is performed by 'Dead Posh Productions'. At a café on a railway station, housewife Laura Jesson meets doctor Alec Harvey. Although they are both already married, they gradually fall in love with each other. They continue to meet every Thursday on the small café, although they know that their love is impossible.....

Venue 21, The Roman Eagle Lodge, Johnston terrace, Edinburgh 02/08/2012 - 27/08/2012 except the 12th August.

As the blurb said: "Join us for afternoon tea, as lovestruck commuters find themselves caught between a rock cake and a hard place. Tempted by something steamy? You will be chuffed if you can make it. Noel Coward's classic".

Review by Michael Wallace:
"Great to see an almost original version of Brief Encounters. Particularly liked the way the passage of time was indicated. Even the small roles were well-portrayed. The pre-war accents were carried off with great success".


The Edinburgh Festival Fringe (The Fringe) is the world's largest arts festival, with the 2012 event spanning 25 days totalling over 2,695 shows from 47 countries in 279 venues. Established in 1947 as an alternative to the Edinburgh International Festival, it takes place annually in Scotland's capital, in the month of August. The Fringe is a showcase for the performing arts, particularly theatre and comedy (which has seen substantial growth in recent years), although dance and music are also represented. In 2012, 36% of shows were comedy and 28% theatrical productions. Theatrical productions range from the classics of ancient Greece to William Shakespeare, Samuel Beckett and contemporary works. In 2012, 1,418 shows were having their world première.

The Fringe is an unjuried festival – with no selection committee, and therefore any type of performance may participate. The Fringe has often showcased experimental works that might not be invited to a more conservative arts festival. In addition to ticketed, programmed events, the Festival has included a street fair, located primarily on the Royal Mile. The Festival is organized by the Festival Fringe Society, which publishes the programme, sells tickets, and offers advice to performers. Their offices are on the Royal Mile.
