Fringe 2017 - Top 10 - #6 - Skirmish of Wit: Your Imaginary Forces
Playing with the forces that cause inexplicable, contradictory, motivations and self-destructive actions of characters on and off stage, the minstrels celebrate the "messiness" of spontaneous interaction.
These youngsters have got to get better at spreading the word about their show. I remember being curious about them last year, and then a hardcore Fringer whose opinion I trust (and is not easily impressed) told me they were absolutely enchanted by their show, so I was sorry I missed it. Apparently, they do the kind of work that makes you think, “OK, theater’s in good hands, the next generation knows what they’re doing and they’re only going to get better.” So this time around I’m going to make it a point to try and see whatever it is they’re up to.
The description gives me next to no clue, really. But I found their website - and there’s links to coverage of last year’s Fringe show, plus a video on a Go Fund Me page, and a super short YouTube recap of their reviews. They’ve also been gathering awards on the school theater festival competition circuit while they’re at it. But hey, guys, don’t make us work so hard to find you. Post some names, some links, you know, the basics. Some of us are still web dependent rather than word of mouth at this point. Give yourselves a fighting chance.
(Random shout-out: Good Kids, another Fringe show with a young cast that almost made the cut)
And here's some handy links to the full list of pre-Fringe top 10, and 11-20, returning favorites, and all the random shout outs in these Top 10/Top 20 posts - links all gathered in a single list to take you to fuller posts and Fringe pages. Enjoy!
