Yay for the Fringe Festival, it was amazing, and huge congrats to WIT’s Co-Creative Director Jennifer O’Sullivan, who was awarded Spirit of the Fringe! As well as two wholly WIT shows, WIT people branched out into solo and creative endeavors all over town. Just a sample: Jen ran the Fringe at the Gryphon venue and appeared in own late-night improv show (and many others). Lyndon Hood pulled together audience-cast Shakespeare covering comedy, history and tragedy. Christine Brooks gave sage advice as Soap character Mackenzie Morgan, and did Literally Anything while part of duo Brooks and Brown. Darryn Woods was a “brilliantly embittered” McDuff in the Scottish Play in the Botanic Gardens.
Soon you’ll be able to book for the Comedy Festival in late April/May (WIT is planning a pitched season of Micetro at the Fringe Bar, and an Out of This World show at BATS), and much more after: signup to the WIT mailing list to be sure not to miss anything.And hey, put a little time aside in in your diary to learn the art of improvising yourself – there’ll be beginner’s classes each term this year in association with the Community Education Centre.
