16th August 2014
Edinburgh Festival 2014: Producer Richard Jordan and Philip Fisher discuss trends in Edinburgh and recommend shows that should not be missed including The James Plays in the International Festival. Between them they have seen 100 productions. Recorded in Edinburgh on Aug 11-2014.
“The Traverse programme has been a real mixture… mostly casts of one, two, occasionally four…” “That’s quite an interesting thing this year, more than ever, we’re seeing many more solo works coming up to Edinburgh than we’ve ever had before. I wonder if that is simply an economic reaction of cost – we may well see more of that. It’s refreshing to see Animal Farm with 23 actors on the stage – that now is a very rare event in Edinburgh.”
