Louisville Fringe Festival is a collection of shows focused on the unclassifiable. Expect a bit of everything, including theater, film, dance, puppetry, spoken word, performance art, magic, circus and stand-up comedy. And since LEO likes fringe, it shouldn’t come as a shock that a few of our own writers are involved. Kate Sedgwick is doing a one-person show that recounts “experiences with psychosis or extreme states, holidays in the psych ward, and a spree of misdemeanors and class D felonies.” Eli Keel is doing a public reading of a new play that follows “a sister dealing with her sibling’s tragic death the only way she knows how: by putting it onstage.” And Creig Ewing will perform stand-up. He said that “his jokes about his family, dog and being an English major don’t seem very fringe so he may try to grow a ponytail really fast.” The details of the many Fringe Festival events are too numerous for a Staff Pick, so be sure to look up the festival’s Facebook page for more details.
