The Sun Dog Theatre Festival is the curated professional theatre festival produced every winter by ON THE EDGE Fringe.
A sun dog is an atmospheric optical phenomenon that consists of bright spots on one or both sides of the Sun. This is caused by the refraction of sunlight through ice crystals which act as prisms, the bending light rays in the atmosphere appearing as spots of light at the same altitude above the horizon as the Sun. Many factors have to align for a sun dog to be produced; the conditions have to be just right in order for something amazing to happen. The Sun Dog Theatre Festival is no different. To make an exceptional theatre experience each facet of the festival must align in exactly the right way to create something phenomenal.
Our 2021 Sun Dog Theatre Festival would have taken place in March 2021, but was cancelled due to Covid-19. In its place, we are programming an online pop-up Monologues Festival from May 17 – 22, 2021. Find out more here!
