Last Minute Fringe Update

Fringe Update. Two news items.

The scripts have now been submitted to the script judge. Playwrights and Producers will know that a play is often tweaked in the magical journey between page and stage. We wanted to give the writers the most time possible, to make any adjustments.

The second item is that there is a slight change to the programme. Two plays have swapped places for logistical reasons and organisers of events will be well familiar with that term. It is a catch-all for basically anything that can go wrong or hadn’t previously been worked out.

All we need now is a decent audience. Please spread the word!
