Getting an Audience on the Fringe

Monday 17th brings us a night of conversation. First up, Greg Tallent, who runs the London Fringe, will come and discuss the vexed issue of getting an audience. As someone whose own plays opens the next night, I shall be following this with keen interest. It's all very well begging friends and family, and sending press releases to all those websites and newspapers you've never heard of. But then what? Greg has confounded his critics when he set this up three years ago, and should be well worth listening to.

After that, there will be a discussion of what we all felt about this year's Camden Fringe: the highs and lows, trials and tribulations. Two of our plays have transferred, and one is getting published by Samuel French. Two got cancelled, one for private reasons, one because of looting.

Find out about all this and more, on Monday, 7.45 at the Phoenix.

One of the plays that transferred, COUNTRY LIFE, is doing good business at the Old Red Lion. The house was full the night i attended and the production was going down well with the website Press. [Review below under comments]
