EdFringe 19: Our halfway picks

This year may be the year for environmental shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival! From bikes powering lights, to reading out the IPCC report, there is a lot of important work about climate change. Here are five of our top picks, which you can catch in the remaining week.

Sustainable Fringe Award Winner: How to Save a Rock

Quick catch-up: it’s 2026, and we've got four years left to save the world. Half a degree out, and millions of lives are at risk. The temperatures are rising, and so are the people – but not enough has changed. Also, there's only one polar bear left alive, and he’s written us a letter. We're going to save him. Will you help? A carbon-neutral comedy, powered by bike and solar power, about how to still have hope. Samuel French New Play Award winner, and Sunday Times Playwriting Award winner, 2019.
