By Sandy Gibson 60 min | Comedy, Drama | PG The first question that will pop into one’s head when considering whether to see Searching for Party is: “Do I need to be a gamer to enjoy it?” I’m happy to report that as far as I’m concerned, the answer is no. Gamers may be […]

60 minutes | Adventure, Comedy, Solo | Mature I’m sure I wasn’t the first person to see the title of this show and think “Huh? A free Fringe show? Sure, I’m down!” It’s not actually a free show, but that’s ok! Free is the direct translation of the Gaelic word “saor”, and the search for […]
