One Month to Fringe

The 2012 Ottawa Fringe Festival starts June 14, which means there is only one month (or 4 weeks, or 31 days, or 744 hours) until Fringe! Now, I realize that may be too long for some of you to go without your Fringe fix, so in order to facilitate your habit (I’m a pusher) we’ve got a couple of pre-festival events lined up to get you through the lonely, beer tent-less nights.
