Vancouver Fringe Festival: Fresh Sheet Sept 9

Vancouver Fringe Festival, Moonlight After Midnight, Martin Dockery

Written by Martin Dockery (L), Moonlight After Midnight is one of the most ambitious scripts at the Fringe. Dockery co-stars with real-life partner Vanessa Quesnelle.

From what Kathleen Oliver and I have seen in covering the Fringe for the Georgia Straight, here are our top ten shows—and a couple of other tips. 

My list includes: Moonlight After Midnight, Magic Unicorn Island, Chase and Stacey’s Joyride, Verbal Diarrhea, Poor, and Peter n’ Chris and the Kinda OK Corral.

Kathleen’s list includes Little One, The Untitled Sam Mullins Project, Dirty Old Woman, and Greenland.

I’ve also been hearing good buzz about The Show Must Go On, which is a late addition, and A Mind Full of Dopamine.

This weekend, shows will be selling out, so book now and/or catch as many as you can earlier in the week, when houses are smaller.
