The Fringe can be a tough place for emerging talent, struggling to be heard over the crowd. Fighting this trend, the IdeasTap Underbelly Award supports four original productions each year with funding, mentoring, and support at Underbelly while the Les Enfants Terribles Award brings a brand-new production to the Pleasance with cash and mentoring from Oliver Lansley and James Seager of LET. James T Harding finds out more from this year’s winners, Ben Norris, Toby Peach, Giles Roberts of the MolinoGroup, Joel Samuels of Fine Mess Theatre, and Izzy Tennyson. Topics covered include the effect of winning an award on the life of a Fringe show as well as the individual shows.
