Neil McPherson celebrates the Finborough fringe theatre

11th January 2011



The artistic director of the award-winning Finborough Theatre, which has just celebrated its 30th anniversary, gives Aleks Sierz a lesson in the history, economics and aesthetics of this London fringe venue. Recorded at the Finborough’s occasionally noisy offices.

It’s easy to be a comet in fringe theatre: you can come in and have a huge success, but you can only keep that up for a year. So I took things more slowly.
