The Fringe Files

Welcome to The Fringe Files

The Fringe Files are a multi-award winning theatre touring company based in the vibrant city of Bristol. Each year, we pull together a team of creatives and present a stage play at a major arts event, such as a fringe or a drama festival. Launched by playwright Michael Starr in 2011, The Fringe Files are considered to be one of the leading theatrical companies in the West of England.
