Second Thursday Fringe Update

Sunday’s full day of performances brought a swarm of people down to Over-the-Rhine, resulting in seven sell-out performances.

CFF_Edgar AllanThe Coldharts’ EDGAR ALLAN sold out its third consecutive performance on Thursday.

Eleven year old Edgar Allan has one goal: to be the most remarkable boy at boarding school. He has only one obstacle: Edgar Allan. A manic lullabye inspired by the childhood and short stories of Edgar Allan Poe.

Their final performance is Sat, June 6 at 7:25pm

CFF_DungeonAlso selling out their penultimate performance was DUNGEON from Hit the Lights, Dad Theater Co. from New York City.

A young man falls into the unknown to rescue something he holds dear. Inspired by kabuki, video games, horror movies, and pixar shorts, Hit the Lights, Dad Theater Co. build a world where the darkness speaks louder than the light.

The last chance to it Sat, June 6 at 4:00pm.

CHEMISTRY from The Cake Shop Theater Company enjoyed its first full house with hits next to last performance.

Steph struggles with chronic depression. Jamie just overachieved himself off the deep end. When they meet in their psychiatrist’s office, they can’t deny their chemistry, but can they survive it?

You can still catch their final performance on Sat, June 6 at 9:00pm.

SHELTER, a collaboration between Pones Inc.and Queen City Flash enjoyed its third sell out with its final performance of the Fringe.

At the end of the world, a teenage couple seek refuge in a backyard fallout shelter. As lights flicker and sirens blare, their internment reveals the cracks between them and their reliance on each other. They soon discover that survival isn’t what you escape, but what you bring with you.

CFF_TruefringeAs is pretty much the norm for all trueTHEATRE events, last night’s special event, trueFRINGE was a sell-out.

There are 15 performances to choose from on Friday and 23 performances on Saturday.
