Fringe Notes: 23/08/10
Monday 23 August 2010
DC Moore's Honest a darkly funny 45-minute monologue of barely contained rage, performed in the snug at Milnes Bar on Hanover Street against the hubbub of a busy working pub.
*Stephen Poliakoff drops into Charlotte Square Gardens later today to talk about his film Glorious 39 and the secrets of a television epic. Hilary Mantel, billed in the programme as "the most successful Booker winner yet", speaks this morning.
*Phillip Breen, who directed Party and Stefan Golaszewski is a Widower last year, is back at the Fringe with Rachel Rose Reid: I'm Hans Christian Andersen. It's a classy production – one woman on a stage, bare but for an old-fashioned Bush radio, weaving fairy tales with contemporary love stories and Joni Mitchell.
