Fringe Olympics “Shockingly” Fun

Oh, yea, I wrote that headline and I am not taking it down! As a participant in what I would think Mr. Anthony Darnell might call “Jeff’s Torture Extravaganza,” I was quite impressed with how enthusiastic teams who went forward with each round, no matter how much we made fools out of ourselves.

From insults to thongs to more insults, I never knew how competitive theatre people can be, well in something other than theatre.

The Conveyor Team spent a strong three or four minutes preparing for this event, so our fourth place finish (out of six teams) was actually much better than the odds makers would have picked.

There’s always next year.
