Zena Barrie and Michelle Flower produced hundreds of shows for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival between 2002 – 2006, but since then, they have brought their organisational skills, hard work, and dedication to Camden to prove that London can do comedy and theatre just as well.
Camden Fringe is now in its ninth year, and produces shows that span the whole borough across twenty-four venues. Between the 28th July - 24th August, you can see over two hundred cutting edge performances that will with have you weeping with joy, laughter, and sadness.
You can see their full schedule on the website, but here's a taster of what you can get on the first night:
Meet Youtube star, Mrs Frankowitz, a Granny with so much cheek she can fit two gobstoppers in her mouth. Listen to her thoughts and decisions about the London property bubble, and how it could destroy her dysfunctional family.
This open air theatre production brings you a whole new fairytale, about Little Hans, the boy who has no fear. He goes in search of his true love, Lind, who is on her own journey to Glass Mountain to fly with the witches.
