harpy18gEdinburgh Festival Fringe 2018: shows we think will sell out fast

From first timers to returning Fringe favourites, here’s the shows from Gilded Balloon, Pleasance, Assembly and Underbelly to book ASAP

It’s that time of year again. We’ve had a halloween, a Christmas, a few apocalyptic storms and the obligatory couple of sunny days – and now we’re back where we started; August and the 71st annual Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Have you read the programme front to back yet? Drawn clumsy, oversized circles round your ‘must see’ shows? Planned a detailed itinerary? I like your style.

Careful though, because there’s no worse feeling than picking out a show and finding out there’s no tickets left. All gone, to people that were quicker than you. We don’t like to see that happening to our readers, and so have put together a list of shows that – if you want to get a seat for – you should move fast.

Harpy: Written for Su Pollard’s Fringe debut, it’s a razor-sharp drama from Fringe First Award-winner Philip Meeks which explores the growing social issue of hoarding.

Edinburgh Fringe 2018: Harpy @ Underbelly – Book Tickets Now!

May 17th, 2018

harpy18aTicket booking for many of the shows and performances at the Edinburgh Fringe 2018 opened today. Including for Su’s debut show, Harpy.

Birdie’s a hoarder. The neighbours call her a harridan and a harpy, although most have never even met her. They see her hoard as a hazard for house prices. But it isn’t rubbish. It’s her life’s work and it exists because years ago something deeply cherished was stolen, and Birdie’s not been able to give up anything since. She’ll do anything to get this priceless thing back. Anything at all. A razor-sharp drama from Fringe First award winner Philip Meeks (Kiss Me Honey, Honey!), directed by Hannah Chissick and starring national treasure Su Pollard in her Edinburgh Fringe debut.
