Are you prepared for what this year’s Edinburgh Fringe has in store for you?
Yes, I think so. It’s my first hour so I’m putting everything I’ve got into it. It’s a great opportunity for growth too but it’s also absolutely terrifying putting yourself out there!
What is the premise of your Edinburgh show this year?
Lies and communication and a candid reflection on what made me be me.
What was the biggest obstacle you face(d) while putting this show together?
Tbh the finances. It’s very expensive to put on a show. I’m sure everyone says that but yeah it’s a struggle and a massive gamble I guess, so that’s scary as a working class performer. In terms of the performance I guess this is the first time I’m really standing on stage and saying how I really felt so that’s been scary as, but I think I’m a natural over-sharer anyway, so its gonna be fine!
Who would most enjoy your show?
Anyone who likes storytelling and a bit of music!
Do you have any other Edinburgh show recommendations?
I think Felicity Ward is absolutely brilliant so can’t wait to see what she’s got to offer this year. Also, Chris Stokes is a very fine storyteller so I’m looking forward to watching that.
What is your favourite thing about Edinburgh as a city?
That I can walk across it in half hour! It’s a beautiful place, I like chilling on the meadows or walking up Arthur’s Seat.
What are your plans for after the festival?
I hope to take my show on tour to other festivals!
