At the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, they’re turning the words of bloggers into a play:
In bedrooms, boardrooms and cafes, Britain’s bloggers pour out their hearts on-line. Thousands of new blogs are created every day. Most aren’t worth your attention. These are… An agoraphobic sex chat-line operator. A nymphomaniac mum of two. A predatory queen… Writer-director Oliver Mann has sifted through hundreds of blogs to compile the most darkly comic, engaging personal diaries into a rapidly-paced play. Like other hit ‘verbatim theatre’ shows (The Vagina Monologues, The Exonerated, My Name Is Rachel Corrie), all the material used to in the play is 100% real… You never really know someone until you’ve seen their diary. Over 18’s only.
Well, that raises the bar. I’ll have to turn into a nymphomaniac to compete.
