fringe-for-free-graphic

Did you miss us, Toronto? We’ve certainly missed you! Fringe is our favourite time of the year, and we love nothing more than sharing it with you — so every summer, by the kindness of dozens of Fringe Festival companies, we get to literally give it away.

Starting today, we’ll be posting a daily list of 5 shows. Shoot us an email and you might win a pair of tickets to one of the hottest productions in town.

Of course, we’re posting other stuff as well: comprehensive coverage of the festival, with a review of every single production by the end of opening weekend; features, interviews, photographs and summaries; news, analysis, whimsies and warnings, we’ll have it all.

But while this is all fine and well, Fringe is about seeing theatre! So click “Read More” for the contest rules and a little something about the 5 shows we’ve got lined up for July 1st, opening day.
