I see there are three plays at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe devoted to blogs.
- Blogging claims to be: ‘an intimate and uplifting play bringing the immediacy of modern communication up against the age old twists and turns that are life's journey’.
- Bloggers - Real Internet Diaries says it is for ‘Over 18s only’ and promises ‘sexually explicit dialogue’ (at 1:10 in the afternoon?).
Since the Fringe has 1,867 shows competing for attention, the appearance of several blog-based plays probably a pretty good indicator of what theatre companies think festival-goers might find current of intriguing. I'd be interested in what happens to the rather delicate balance of anonymous words on a page when they are dramatised by an actor speaking on a stage. I expect that next year there will be Instapundit: The Musical.
