Brian created Fringe Orphans in 2012, and since then it has brought dozens of ideas to life that might have never existed otherwise. He's proud to do it again this year. Next up, he's an assistant director for The Haunted Basement (now in its 12th year!), and will be appearing as VreD in A Klingon Christmas Carol at the Mounds Theater. In his spare time, he stands around amazed that he has spare time.
After a three year hiatus, Fringe Orphans returns with (another) series of short Fringe show ideas, which burn brightly but too short a time to fill an hour. This year, we present the perils of dating, the plight of unicorns, the hazards of late dinners, and more.
