Attention, Fringe lovers! If you’ve been in withdrawal since summer and you’re aching for some indie theater, this is arguably an even more fruitful time than July’s Capital Fringe fest. Last week, the three-week series “On the Fringe: Eye On Edinburgh” opened at the Kennedy Center, featuring five shows (four of which are still running) from the mother Fringe festival in Scotland. And yesterday, the local iteration of Fringe kicked off its fall mini-fest with performances of Elephant, McSwiggin’s Pub, and Sex, Dreams and Self-Control. Seven more shows, for a total of 10, will be onstage at the Shop at Fort Fringe. The last day of performances, Nov. 21, will be a doozy, with five—count ’em—five productions scheduled.
