In the summer of 2014, an intrepid team of documentarians set off to chronicle the adventures of artists touring the Canadian Fringe Festival circuit. After 10 cities, over 18,000 kilometres, countless hours of interviews and more coffee than your doctor would advise, they collected a treasure trove of the stories behind the stories and the scenes behind the scenes.

The result: On the Fringe, a feature-length documentary that takes you on a fun and poignant road trip through this undeniable force in the world theatre scene.
