Expect The Unexporcupine

OK, we gave you an update on The Scotsman’s first batch of Fringe First winners last weekend, but – in our bid to namecheck every winner at this darn Festival – we ought to put down on record the first set of winners of The Herald’s festival gongs too, The Angels.

And that particular paper has been busy bigging up both ‘Correction’, by VerTeDance, Jirí Havelka and Clarinet Factory at Zoo, and the much acclaimed and pretty much sold out (though you might still get a ticket for the extra big showing at Assembly) ‘Fake It ‘Til You Make It’, from Fringe legend Bryony Kimmings.

The Herald also gave a Little Devil Award to the team behind the Underbelly Circus Hub, in recognition of them getting the venue up and running despite strong winds causing problems at the very start of the Fringe.

The Stage has also already dished out some of its Acting Excellence prizes for Festival 2015, giving over awards to Molly Vevers for her performance in ‘Ross And Rachel’ at Assembly George Square Theatre, and to Aoife Duffin for her performance in ‘A Girl Is A Half-Formed Thing’ at the Trav.

Got time for some more? Well, Fringe Review has given its first Outstanding Theatre Award to Babolin Theatre for ‘The Frantic Canticles Of Little Brother Fish’ at the Bedlam.

And finally for now, well done to the winners of the second ever Comedy Poster Awards, which gave its panel prize to Tom Parry off of Pappys for the poster to his show ‘Yellow T-Shirt’, while the punter-voted award went to the many and various poster designs for Free Fringe show ‘Expect The Unexporcupine’ (one of which is pictured above). And they really are rather good, says I. And I’ve analysed a fair few Fringe posters in my time.
