Edinburgh Festival Fringe line-up unveiled

10th June 2011

The line-up for this year's Edinburgh Festival Fringe has been revealed and will include a celebration of the works of Harold Pinter directed by Hollywood star John Malkovich.

The Fringe is the biggest arts festival on the planet and this year's event is set to be no exception, with a total of 21,000 performers set to participate from August 5th to 29th.

Malkovich will be among those taking part, directing actor Julian Sands in a play which celebrates the life and work of Harold Pinter, while writer and director Mark Ravenhill will return to the festival with the play Ten Plagues, starring Marc Almond.

Kath Mainland, chief executive of the Festival Fringe Society, said the 2,542 events taking place this year will truly offer something for everyone, from stand-up performances and intimate musical gigs to large-scale theatre productions and recitals.

'The Edinburgh Festival Fringe is still the first choice for performers, producers, venues, artists and creators to come and tell their story; we are proud that the Fringe is still the place to bring your work,' she added.

Last year, the festival generated over GBP 141 million for the local economy and is expected to surpass this figure in 2011.
