I've never been to the Winnipeg Fringe before, despite having lived in Winnipeg nearly fifteen years. This week, I hope to attend a handful and take in some of the fun I've been missing up until now :)
If anyone is interested in tagging along, company would be great, just send me a message before hand and we'll meet up. I wasn't planning on picking up advanced tickets to the below show, just making sure to grab them at the door (if experienced Fringe-ers have advice on this matter, it's welcome).
