Spoken Word (storytelling, true-life)

Dates, Times and Prices


PBH reads from his book, the story of the Free Fringe from 1996 to now: how we became the Fringe’s biggest show provider and the many catastrophes and odd triumphs along the way. A fascinating story, especially if you're interested in the Fringe itself. Did PBH's invention of the Free Fringe save the Fringe itself, as he claims? Or is this just a collection of true stories? Q&A time available.
