Each August, Camden Fringe is an unrivalled chance to see edgy, experimental and brand new theatre at bargain basement prices. It’s hosted by a gaggle of north London fringe theatres, several of which are above pubs, so you can sip a freshly-poured pint as you watch new plays about anything from bloodthirsty medieval countesses to cosplay. But with over 200 shows on 2017’s line-up, it’s hard to know where to start. Read on for our recommendations of some of the most exciting shows at Camden Fringe.
