The Top 263 Shows at EdFringe 2016

August 3, 2016

So, an apology is due. I really dropped the ball on my Top Shows of EdFringe 2016 list. I published the first two parts properly, with photos and descriptions and everything, and with grand promises of publishing a full list of 258 shows. But then some stuff happened both in my personal life, and some work came in on the professional side of things, that prevented me from working on it for a bit, and the more I fell behind with it the less it felt like a priority - after all, I only do it every year as a labour-intensive middle finger to all the people who think the only shows worth seeing at the Fringe are the ones that show up in all the press articles and best-of lists. And there are people making similar gestures in defence of the creativity and kind-heartedness of the Fringe in far better, more imaginative ways than I am (see: Fringepig). Maybe it was time I retired my absurdly long list and just got on with things? But then I've always been an obsessive person who gets weird kicks out of listing things, and there's never a bad time to make a kind gesture and recommend a great show to people. So, with all due apologies that this year the list doesn't have nice photos or descriptions for everyone as I no longer have the time to do that, but hoping you all appreciate the list's existence anyway, here is the DEFINITIVE list of the Top 263 Shows at EdFringe 2016.
