Wishing on a Stopgap
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Stopgap: a temporary way of fixing a problem or satisfying a need. There are no romantic clichs here. While travelling the country and giving away books, a retired teacher begins to reflect on their life, sexuality, and feelings about love. What have we learned, intentionally or not, from Shakespeare, the Bronts, and Bridget Jones? Funny, thought-provoking, and bittersweet, this play questions the faltering relationship between romanticism and love in the modern world.
