CLIVE HART from Portsmouth is fed up with performing on the Mound. The juggler wishes he had less competition. His pick of the Fringe is comic poet John Hegley: 'Very original and extremely funny'. Andy Head from Woking enjoyed The Reduced Shakespeare Company. 'They reminded me of a guy I know from Connecticut. Do all Americans talk that fast?' Mhairi Scott from Edinburgh recommends Circe at Bedlam. 'Half way through watching it I thought, 'Now this is theatre.' The masks are genuinely frightening.' Nick Revell, on at the Assembly Rooms, raves about The Feast Before the Plague: 'I shall see it again. It was passionate and visually beguiling.'
