As an en­cour­ager of out-of-the-box theatre, the Fringe inaugurates a se­ries of mi­cro-plays staged in small venues in the Hon­est Ed park­ing lot. Six troupes have each been given eight two-hour slots to pro­gram as they want; some are stag­ing a pair of 45-minute shows ev­ery evening, oth­ers have shorter shows, and a few are cu­rat­ing ca­sual drop-in events.

Among the shows – all pwyc – are Change Room, in which a per­former (there are 50 in all) ac­tu­ally changes while talk­ing about change in her or his life (from July 4).

Head­shots And Heal­ing Po­tion is a se­ries of short plays about video game fanatics (from July 4), while Stamped looks at a boy with autism and his at­ten­tion-hun­gry sis­ter (from July 4).

Go down this al­ley and ex­pe­ri­ence tons of drama.
