Anguis, Edinburgh Fringe 2019

Time Out says

Last year’s strand of Edinburgh Fringe collaborations between BBC Arts and Avalon was one of the disappointments of the festival, as a series of famous people who probably didn’t really need a helping hand turned in a series of plays that weren’t very good.

But it’s back, and while serious questions will probably be asked if they’re not absolutely spectacular, this new batch does look better. ‘Anguis’ is probably the most hotly anticpated, coming from Olivier-winning actor and geenral polymath Sheila Atim. Concerning ‘an imagined conversation between the great pharaoh Cleopatra and a contemporary immunologist’, ‘Anguis’ is about the responsibility towards truth in the post-truth era.
