What we will be seeing during the 2012 Adelaide Festival and Fringe

It is always the same with major festivals - how is it possible to fit in everything you want to see along with still trying to do at least some work, keep up with research and still find the time to do all the other things that go along with modern life?

Therefore, after much deliberation, juggling of calendars, shifting of appointments and generally clearing the decks, the Cadogan and Hall Festival and Fringe programme of events is as follows:

Judith Lucy: Nothing Fancy - Thebarton Theatre, Friday 24 February @ 8.45pm
Charles Barrington:  Inside the Actors Studio Apartment - Tuxedo Cat, Tuesday 28 February @ 8.30pm

Thoughts on this list appreciated - have we made some terrible mistakes?  Any sure-fire winners amongst this crowd?  Where have we wasted our money or where are we amongst the avant-garde?
