Lashings is at the Fringe from now until August 17th! First - and shamelessly - if you haven't checked out this lovely interview/profile of Lashings from Last Year's Girl, now's the time!

I laugh, I cry, I sing along when I can; I shudder as performance poet Sally Outen recalls how she learned about sex accompanied by disturbingly graphic readings from a children’s book supposedly about cute, cuddly moles. If you go along and manage not to, well, you’d have to have a heart of stone.
