After the cancellation of the 2020 Edinburgh Festivals due to the coronavirus pandemic, apart from a small number of online shows, the 2021 festivals are going ahead, with some shows happening in front of live audiences and some online.

BTG Editor David Chadderton spoke to Fringe performer, writer, director and producer Guy Masterson, in Edinburgh to perform a cut-down version of his one-man Under Milk Wood by Dylan Thomas for his 27th year on the Fringe, about how different Edinburgh seems this year, as well as the damage caused to theatre by lockdown, even touching on the effects of Brexit on touring artists.

Guy Masterson’s shows tour regularly around the UK and internationally. The Shark is Broken will run at the Ambassador’s Theatre in London from 9 October 2021 to 15 January 2022. For more information, see Theatre Tours International.
