In August 2019, I spent a week in Edinburgh, watching plays at the Fringe, a festival which is a worldwide reference and that provides an immense market for the scenic arts. Representing Brazilian festival MITsp – Mostra Internacional de Teatro de São Paulo, I attended the British Council Edinburgh Showcase (which includes plays on the Fringe and the Edinburgh International Festival). It included more than thirty shows in six days – which is nothing compared to the almost four thousand shows that are part of this year’s edition. In this article, I will write about a part of that program. I do not intend to write a review for each play, but to present a few ideas that came to my mind regarding all those plays together and side-by-side.
