The latest edition of The Skinny prompted a few chuckles in the EIF press office last week. Their feature Arts Wars made the (somewhat obscure but nonethless enjoyable) comparison between Edinburgh Festival season and the characters of Star Wars. We didn't come off too badly compared to some and were likened to 'The Emperor - Only appears near the end, expects own high standards to be met. Wields strange powers'. We can definitely live with that.
As for the Spiegeltent (The Force: everyone talks about it all the time, but what's it actually for?) see post below.
