NOW Magazine - Fringe - - Fringe preview 25 things you can’t miss -

Not ev­ery Fringe work is a to­tally new script. Some­times con­tem­po­rary play­wrights rein­vent or give a new spin to well-known works.

The Bi­ble pro­vides ma­te­rial for two pieces, Erotic Tales From The Old Tes­ta­ment, done as an out­door bur­lesque show (from July 4 at St. George the Mar­tyr Church, 197 John), and A King’s Heart, the story of King David, ruler and mu­si­cian (from July 4 at Fac­tory Mainspace).

Hon­est Ae­sop’s Fables uses com­me­dia to retell some of Ae­sop’s most fa­mous in­struc­tive tales (from July 4 at Palmer­ston Li­brary). The Hat­ter looks at Alice In Won­der­land’s Mad Hat­ter, re­flect­ing on his life with song, story and tea; an au­di­ence mem­ber gets to be the Jab­ber­wock (from July 5 at Tar­ragon Ex­tra Space). In­no­cent When You Dream plays with the char­ac­ters in Don Quixote as the vi­sion­ary knight blends his story with that of Moby Dick (from July 5 at Robert Gill).

One of the fest’s most an­tic­i­pated shows is sure to be El­iz­a­beth – Darcy: An Adap­ta­tion Of Pride And Prej­u­dice, with a two-per­son fe­male cast (from July 3 at Camp­bell House Mu­seum, 160 Queen West).

No 16 Erotic Tales From The Old Tes­ta­ment heats up the Good Book.
