FRINGE PRODUCERS should be warned that not all publicity works. John Lloyd, appearing in Function of the Orgasm, says he will avoid Seven Brides for Seven Brothers like the plague, after meeting their wholesome PR on the Mound: 'Imagine a whole city of Bonnie Langfords.'

Claire Taylor from Wokingham is telling her relations to avoid Lysistrata at Adam House Theatre: 'They don't do anything with their big willies.' Clothing attracts Sarah from London to Smoke by Cambridge ADC. She enjoyed the 'unusually costumed fairies moving in bizarre ways'. The oddly attired comedian Emo Philips offers the following tip-from-the-top: 'See Steven Berkoff. I've seen him on TV and he's hysterically funny.'
