Fringe Days Four and Five – a thriller, an opera and a fond farewell

Two more days of frenetic show-going see Rebecca queuing for a psychological thiller alongside Oxford theatre group Not Quite Write – and then talking to the play’s creator Kashyap Raja about psychology and myth. All too soon it’s Friday, and time for the final performance, Last Dream (on Earth), before it’s time to go home.

 

Have a listen – and don’t miss today’s absolutely bonus feature – a dual language interview with the director of A Terrified Soul: the story of Macbeth as performed, sung and danced by opera and theatre companies from Anhui Province, China.
