Turning Blogs Into Theater At The Edinburgh Fringe Festival

That's right. They started off with some guy's blog which morphed into study of all British bloggers, and voila: a play. Which was performed at Edunburgh's 6-day arts festival.

BBC's Clark Boyd writes:

"I'd never heard of blogs until a year ago," says the play's director, Oliver Mann, who worked until recently as a television producer in London.

Last year, he and a friend heard from an old classmate, who told them to check out his blog.

"He just wrote the most intensely personal stuff about his private life," Mr Mann says. "We became so addicted to it that we were checking it out at work."

"We started sort of performing it for each other, and that is when I realised that blog like this would work well as a kind of dramatic monologue, in an intimate stage venue."

Wow what an interesting tidbit of information...I would probably like this offbeat idea.
