The Fringe 2019 kicked off last week. We thought we would let the performers get their opening night jitters out of the way, now they are feeling confident and settled, we bring you a small selection. Yes we have trawled through 1000s of shows that are on, to bring you a diverse and inclusive set of shows you should really go and see.

So if you are in Edinburgh in the next few weeks, this is what to see at the Edinburgh Fringe 2019.

“You see, I never really felt like much of a boy. And finding a way to write this is weird, because I can’t explain it?’ When friends die and pronouns change, what’s left of the memories that don’t fit anymore? A moving autobiographical account of growing up queer in the mid-noughties, finding yourself and losing a friend. Storytelling, original pop music score and way too many America’s Next Top Model references.”

This is a LGBTQ+ themed moving piece of theatre, that is full of emotion, and a must see.

A post shared by The Roaring Girls (@theroaringgirls) on

“It’s the season of cutting carbs, hitting it hard at the gym, and shaving everything from the chin down. Summer has rocked up and the media has us thinking about how our bodies aren’t up to scratch and there are companies ready to capitalise on that. Join The Roaring Girls for a defiantly feel-good show which sticks two fingers up at how the media says you should look. The Roaring Girls are getting Beach Body Ready. Are you?”

Scottee: Class

A post shared by Scottee (@scotteeisfat) on

“Scottee grew up around mould, mice and clothes off the market. After a chance meeting with some posh kids, his mum teaching him to talk proper and him successfully persuading her to take him off free school meals Scottee knew he didn’t want to be common. Class is a show about what it is to be embarrassed, pretending to be posher than you are and explores why we all get a thrill playing god with green tokens from Waitrose. This is a show for the middle classes.”

Hard hitting, but very important, we urge you to see Class.

“Sophie Duker is your Venus, she’s your fire, your desire. Or is she? Silly, sexy, savage stand-up from a girl who’s definitely not a goddess. In her hotly anticipated full-fat woke debut hour Sophie takes her audience on an unconventional journey of self-discovery. Strap in.”

After Ducker’s activism surrounding diversity at the Fringe, this comedian is not to be missed.

Burgerz

A post shared by Hackney Showroom (@hackneyshowroom) on

“Hurled words. Thrown objects. Dodged burgers. After someone threw a burger at them and shouted a transphobic slur, performance artist Travis Alabanza became obsessed with burgers. This is the climax of their obsession: exploring how trans bodies survive and how, by them reclaiming an act of violence, we can address our own complicity.”

A post shared by THE QUEER HOUSE (@thequeerhouseldn) on

“Underscored by poetry, movement and original beats, Pink Lemonade is a solo piece of experimental theatre which explores femxle masculinity, racial fetishism, sexuality and gender identity. Presented by The Queer House and HighTide.”

This is a truly unique view point on several hard hitting topics.
