The world's largest arts festival, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe is a crucible for the creation of new and experimental work, a place where talent is often unveiled. The Kennedy Center's ON THE FRINGE: Eye on Edinburgh celebrates the spirit of artistic entrepreneurship that exists in Edinburgh each summer in a showcase of some imaginative new work from that fertile environment. Presentations include theater, free performances on the Millennium Stage, performance art, and installations in the public spaces of the Center.
Traverse Theatre Company Midsummer [a play with songs] By David Greig and Gordon McIntyre Directed by David Greig From Scotland's theater for new writing comes Midsummer, a story of two strangers whose one-night stand turns into a long weekend of bridge burning, car chases, midnight meetings, hung-over misery, and the redistribution of a small fortune in stolen money. Unflinching in its stare at the panic that hits everyone as they approach middle age, Midsummer is a "warm-hearted, beautifully sculpted musical romantic comedy" (The Scotsman).
