Words, words, words …
We experimented with this show-finding tool at Edinburgh Fringe a few years and got some positive feedback.
The FringeReview team are collecting together short phrases from shows’ listings in the Fringe programme or their press releases.
All the shows below are recommended as worth seeing by FringeReview. All you have to go on is the phrase that leapt out at us. Which ones leap out at you? Scroll over the phrase and follow the link to reveal the show and, perhaps, follow that gut instinct and book a ticket…

“Perplexed and burning with curiosity, he now finds himself with no choice but to revisit family history, asking questions of his father he never would have dared to ask before. Do the shop’s grease-stained walls hold the answers?“
“A mysterious child, left alone in the Forest of the Winter Moon, embarks upon a journey of self-discovery. In the Land of Somewhere Else she encounters lost and forgotten folk wandering through a fragmented and fragile faerie tale realm in search of home.“
“Outside over the reef, the Frogman hovers, looking for traces of a missing child. As police search lights refract through the ocean, the annual coral bloom is due, creating an underwater snowstorm. Time is running out.“
More added each day. Take your chances!
And we are crowdsourcing these shows too, tapping into the intuition of the Crowd.
