Edinburgh Fringe: six good reasons to visit the festival

The Week / The Week

THE EDINBURGH Festival kicks off today with more than 40,000 performances and 2,500 shows. Here are six Fringe acts that arts critics are looking forward to, from ‘sexy, stoner clowns’ to a 24-hour solo act.

If 24H was an event at the Olympics, it would be the marathon, says The Independent. The title describes the show’s running time: 24 hours, in which the script, a cappella music and performance are all delivered by one man, Waclaw Miklaszewski. It starts at 6am and continues to 6am the next day, promising “24 life stories in one slow-going, lazy day, suspended in time”. Audience members pay £1 for a ticket and can stay as long as they wish.
