Sarah Kendall has penned a dramatic report from the frontline of the Edinburgh Festival, which is now just over half-way through.
Kendall conjures up the physical and emotional endurance demanded by the Festival with her tongue firmly in her cheek. She says, “With 12 nights left to go, I have started to try to cast my mind forward to September, when the war is over and we can all return to our homes. What will ‘home’ be like after all this time? Will my neighbours and friends look the same to me, will I look the same to them, or will we feel foreign to each other in some indefinable way?” Gripping stuff!
