Idea for a Fringe Performance

"Prospero misses the night bus"

A cross between Shakespeare and Beckett in which a slightly sozzled troupe of performers walk home in the middle of the night, performing The Tempest as they go. Performed on the move in the streets of Edinburgh, with the cast surrounding the audience.

Abusing your brain for profit

Remember the post I wrote whereby the click of comprehension is linked with opiate release in the brain?

Looks like something similar is being taken advantage of here, where people are shown an anagram of a brand name, and then shown the name "solved", causing them to feel good about the brand and tink they've seen it before, because they suddenly recognise it.

Look out for this one in adverts soon...
