Edge Hill will be showcasing some of its talent at this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe, which is the largest arts festival in the world taking place every August for three weeks.
Every year thousands of performers take to hundreds of stages all over Edinburgh to present shows for every taste. From big names in the world of entertainment to unknown artists looking to build their careers, the festival caters for everyone and includes theatre, comedy, dance, physical theatre, circus, cabaret, children’s shows, musicals, opera, music, spoken word, exhibitions and events.
Edge Hill’s Creative Writing lecturer Billy Cowan will be showcasing his award-winning play Care Takers, former student and actress Phina Oruche will perform Identity Crisis, and Naughty Corner Productions, a theatre company made up of Edge Hill graduates, will perform their shows Dirty Glitter and Not the Horse.
In addition, Edge Hill University Press, the University’s own literary imprint which is run by students, will launch its first publication Head Land at Edinburgh International Book Festival which will run alongside the Fringe.
The Edinburgh Festival Fringe will run from 5th – 29th August 2016.
