Erica is not writing this blog post. Erica is lying crumpled up on the bed after two intense days of the wonderful Edmonton Fringe Festival. Were she here and even vaguely conscious, she would tell you they were two perfect days full of time with friends, delicious street food, and nine different beautiful gems of theatre.
The two-day Edmonton Fringe lineup:
- Paul Strickland, Balls of Yarns
- Ragmop Theatre, Hotel Vortruba
- La Fille du Laitier, Macbeth Muet
- Wonderheads, The Wilds
- Erika Kate MacDonald, Evacuated
- The Coldharts, Eddie Poe
- Theatrically Obsessed, Bushtits, Shih Tzus & Private Dicks
- Shawn O’Hara, Field Zoology 101
- jem rolls, I, IDIOT
Thank you so much to Paul Strickland and Erika Kate MacDonald, not only for inviting us to Edmonton in the first place, but for hand-selecting the perfect lineup of shows that we took in, for choosing the best restaurants and food carts in Alberta, for introducing us to all of your friends and fellow artists, and for being two of the most delightful people on this planet.
Tomorrow: back on the road again, where grilled cheeses this amazing will surely be harder to come by.
