Edinburgh Festival Recap

Just back from spending most of August in Edinburgh at the Festival, all at the Fringe this year.  I saw 46 shows and can remember most of them.  Stand-outs included Blam! at the Pleasance.  It’s coming to London for a short run later this year.  A glorious night out.  See it!  And I enjoyed the low-key comic James Acaster, who seems to be having a deserved surge in popularity.

P.S.  I had a wonderful time at the reading group.  Intelligent, probing questions that made me think.  And our hostess put on the 17th century farthingale petticoat and bodice  I took with me.
