Fringe Actors Perform in Zoo

HUMANS are to form the latest attraction at Edinburgh Zoo - as part of an unusual Fringe event.

Five performers will reportedly live in a sanctuary at the zoo for 11 days in an enclosure originally designed for penguins.

The show - entitled Enclosure 44 - will involve people behaving like captive animals, and even being fed at certain times by other performers dressed as zoo keepers.

Actors will also interact with the public, and generally behave how they please for the course of the event, which runs from August 5-16.
