Fringe For All : Top Picks

This year’s Fringe-For-All showcased so much incredible talent and so many hilarious, exciting, and intense shows that narrowing down my top picks was a challenge. Here are a few that stuck by the end of the night:


L’appel du vide by rats?!

Natasha Perry-Fagant has been putting on award-winning Fringe shows for years now, and somehow I’ve missed all of them. This is probably because horror isn't really my scene. However, this feels like the year to branch out and try new things, and there is something about a grieving witch trying to find inner peace by ending the world that is strangely relatable.


Fairy Fails by Twinkles and Twirls

On a lighter note, Dot Dot Dot from House of Laureen will be telling the story of a fairy attempting to achieve the miracle of flight. I’ve seen their work in the past and it is always fun and adorable. I am expecting no different from such a delightful premise executed by such a talented performer.


The Carrot: Sex, Shit Death by The Carrot Company

I am uncertain what this is about, but the two minutes they had at the Fringe-For-All was some of the hardest I laughed all night. It was a fabulous combination of slapstick comedy and surrealist puppetry. And carrots. I am looking forward to finding out what it’s about.
