Blogging the Fringe: 87% True

Danger - Blogging while Fringing.

Ever wonder what it'd be like to immerse yourself in the madness that is Fringe theatre? Well, the team behind 87% True: The Lies That Bind wants to let you in on the secret.

Rosemary Rowe and Chris Gilpin are the dynamic duo behind the play, which they are taking on a Fringe-tastic tour across Canada - Toronto, Saskatoon, Edmonton, and Vancouver. And though they are doubtless ready to do nothing but nap between shows, they're taking the time to blog.

What is it like to travel with the show? How does it feel to get those reviews? What happens when the slide projector doesn't work? It's all here, unfiltered. Their nicely designed site includes pictures, and they write in a conversational, buoyant tone about their experiences.

You'll be relieved to know that this isn't one of those blogs whr ppl rite lk ths 2 b Qt! Yes, they capitalize and punctuate.

Take a peek at the site, and if you're tempted, you still have time to catch their show before they drive into the sunset. They're at the Factory Theatre today at 3pm, Wed, July 12 at 4pm, Thu, July 13 at 5:45pm, and Sat, July 15 at 7pm.
