Fringe Statement on Bitter Lemons Article

Today we learned that the editor of our long-time media partner Bitter Lemons posted an article in reaction to the recent story of long-term abuse at the Chicago Profiles Theatre. The article has incited a serious response from and conversation within the Fringe community that requires us to re-evaluate our relationship with Bitter Lemons.

Providing a safe space is essential to our job. We do not condone abuse.

We believe that abuse is given an extended life when victims are told they are to blame. In solidarity with all individuals who have been victims of abuse, the Hollywood Fringe Festival will no longer work with or endorse Bitter Lemons.
