Fringe Festival Preview 

On the Fringe: highlights of the Atlantic Fringe Festival, which runs from September 3 to 13 at five venues around town.

Nothing says early September like costumed actors on Argyle Street trying to lure you into darkened theatres, equipped only with charm and lovingly designed flyers. It's no cult: it's the Atlantic Fringe Festival, which runs from September 3 to 13 at five venues around town.

There are over 25 productions this year---you've got your comedies and dramas, your brave solo monologues, a few musicals and dance numbers. Dark comedy Jill and Jack, starring Lisa Rose Snow and Ian Mullan, is the first original play by Trrrash Productions, who recently wowed with its Pride production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch. DaPoPo and Metamorphic Theatre join forces for What about Luv?, a musical farce about love and deceit, set on a New York bridge. Dylan Edward's heavy metal musical The Overlord looks like it has the potential to rock you off the planet.

For a more interactive experience, there's CHUG, contemporary dance performed in and around the busy Economy Shoe Shop. Normally this would be reason for concern, except when it's SINS (Sometime in Nova Scotia), a collective of dancers that includes Jacinte Armstrong, Susanne Chui and Sara Coffin. Visit atlanticfringe.ca for the full schedule, show descriptions and some of the most affordable ticket prices going.
