52 weeks, 52 fringe venues

On the 1st September 2010 I set myself a challenge: visit 52 London fringe venues and see 52 different productions in 52 weeks. To save me typing all of that I tend to refer to it here as 52:52. You get the point I'm sure.

This challenge came on the back of a heady 50-shows-in-three-weeks-at-Edinburgh-Fringe and the knowledge that I needed shaming for how little I saw on the London fringe. I had some general thoughts that I might learn something along the way about London and theatre and the fringe but we won't get over-ambitious about that. At the very least it seems I'm learning about the relative prices of a can of Diet Coke.

The rules of the project (as much as there are rules) are here, whilst all the specific entries are tagged under Fringe Dreams. As of venue 10, with thanks to @BattleActs, you can also follow the project via the hashtag #52in52 on twitter.

I love debate, cake and free theatre. If you want to indulge in any of them with me feel free to leave a comment, @ me on twitter or send an email to distantaggravation at gmail dot com. Equally feel free to send press releases or other such useful information to that email too.
