Dear 2020 St Lou Fringe Festival Artist:

 

Welcome to the 2020 St Lou Fringe VIRTUAL Festival!

 

Fringe started life when eight theatre companies turned up uninvited to the inaugural Edinburgh International Festival in 1947. With the "official" festival using the city's major venues, these companies took over smaller, alternative venues for their productions. Seven performed in Edinburgh, and one undertook a version of the medieval morality play "Everyman" in Dunfermline Abbey, about 20 miles north, across the River Forth in Fife. 

 

These groups aimed to take advantage of the large assembled theatre crowds to showcase their own alternative theatre. Although at the time it was not recognized as such, this was the first Edinburgh Festival Fringe and 76 years later St Lou Fringe is proudly carrying on the tradition of our ancestors in Edinburgh.

 

In nine years St Lou Fringe has unleashed hundreds of voices across our stages. We are proud to have launched shows like Count Time: The Life and Times of Patricia Pruitt by Elizabeth Townsend, A Time for A Change by Tony L. Marr Jr., Pollock: A Frequency Parable by the Unconventional Empire and now you.
