Today I saw a show I’d been looking forward to for months. Antonym Theatre were responsible was Staircases, one of my favourite shows of 2015 Fringe. I’d has to miss the show last year as I left before they came up, but this year I my time in the city once again coincided with their run. I was ecstatic and, it turns out, right to be so. They’ve produced another great show this year with Side Orders still on for one more show at time of writing I believe.
I spoke to them after, and they really are some of the nicest people I’ve met at Fringe, and I like to think of them now as my Fringe-Friends. It’s always nice to have Fringe-Friends.
There after, I returned to my cafe, and had tea and cake, before being joined by Frazer. We moved from there to our old venue to finally see the show that had always been on before us, recommended by Jake who had gone the night before. #Instalove, as it was called, really is very unique, and the most interactive show I saw this year.
From there, we went to see 12, over on Niddry Street, a Twelfth Night reimagining containing an old friend of Frazer’s. It was a delightful 50 minutes of camp cabaret fun. Immediately afterwards, we were able to catch The Writers’ Room, a new and creative improv show from the same people behind Murder She Didn’t Write. We laughed a dangerous amount.
From there it was once again back to the house, where I made myself some pasta and ended the day feeling generally good about how I’d spent it.
