On 1st July, we launched a competition for Edinburgh Fringe performers to win advertising space on our website. We’ve been inundated with entries, many of which have amused us – so we thought we would share the best of the entries to date. Some entries were so excited to enter and they told us why, but forgot to tell us what their show was!
If you think you can do better, you have until noon on Monday 12th July to submit your entry. Good luck!
The Tempest – We’re the only show on the Fringe that you reach by crossing a drawbridge
Dusk on the river Nile – We’re a new company, with a new script but we’re telling the oldest story of humanity – the myth of Isis and Osiris.
Dildon’t – Because second-hand sex shops don’t get enough business these days – bloody recession…”
Two Brothers and one World Cup – With the audience choosing the sequence of events at each performance ; not only will every Scot revel in the delight of watching a pair of useless England fans squirm at their beloved teams failures in World Cups 1982-2010, they will also enjoy a guaranteed premiere at every show.
Hamlet for Girls – I went through IVF, failed to conceive a child but produced Hamlet for Girls instead; it is literally my baby, and it deserves to live!
Of People and Not Things– because we blew our entire advertising budget on pie (Mmm… pie).
For 21 nights only! – because clouds have got some bad publicity this year what with all the ash clouds so we need to get people loving clouds again, especially comedy ones.
Jacob’s Ladder is a dark, slightly twisted, character driven, brand new comedy by young playwright Emily Moir; maybe we don’t deserve to win but, by god, are we sexy.
The ginge, the geordie and the greek – I have been to the Great Wall of China, I have seen the Pyramids of Egypt, I’ve even witnessed a grown man satisfy a camel, but never in all my years have I witnessed something as beautiful as this….
