Before The Show

Taken at the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe festival – Many people do not think about the sheer amount of hard work that street performers, whether they be seasoned professionals or simply theatre groups trying to show to prospective ticket buyers, actually put into their preparation and performance.

For most of the street performance areas there is no area to get ready or change costume prior to appearing.  It simply has to be done in the street in full view of the passing public.
