Close Cut Fringe

26th July 2007

The Stage reports that a mere two weeks before the Edinburgh Festival Fringe one of the venue managers, Understairs Arts, has gone into voluntary liquidation, which leaves more than 35 shows without theatres.

Jon Morgan, director of the Festival Fringe Society, said :”I was sad to learn the news that Understairs Arts had to take the decision to go into voluntary liquidation. The Fringe Society does not directly contract artists or venues, but we do offer advice and support. We are in contact with the companies affected to give them as much help as we can so that as many as is possible are still able to perform.”
