This Mercury News article talks about the San Francisco Fringe Festival:

Here’s what you need to know about this marvelous annual event. Yes, some of the productions you’ll encounter are as rough as the neighborhood they’re performed in. There might be a botched line or a faulty prop somewhere along the line. But what you are getting are raw, passionate stage productions that are often new and urgent and relevant.…There are 40 shows in all. I can’t speak for any of them. Some of them probably are dreadful. But I am sure glad the Bay Area has a festival where these sorts of shows feel welcome.
