So, I’m about to head up to Edinburgh and hook up with Chris and Clare for the festival. Very much looking forward to it too.
Chris is performing as part of the Forest Fringe programme today (Mon 24) and tomorrow (Tues 25) at 530pm. You don’t have to book and (like all the events at Forest Fringe) it’s free. Both Chris and I performed some new work there last year and it’s a lot of fun – the programme this year is looking even tastier. I’ll definitely be seeing both shows that Third Angel are performing there, Action Hero and whatever else I happen to stumble across at whatever time I’m around. Full programme for Forest Fringe here.
Other shows I’m booked in to see are:
Iris Brunette by Mel Wilson (and lit by Unlimited associate Ben Pacey)
Origins by Pentabus Theatre
How Heap and Prebble Took On The world and Won by Dancing Brick
Susurrus by David Leddy
Showstopper The Improvised Musical at George Square
The Event at Assembly Rooms
Dennis Kelly’s “Orphans” and Inspector Sands “If That’s All There Is”, both at The Traverse
We’ll also all be getting along to see long term associate Lucy Ellinson performing in “Land Without Words” which is on at Just The Tonic @ The Caves (Venue 88). By many accounts it’s a proper outstanding performance (which comes as no surprise to us) and Lucy’s been nominated for The Stage’s Acting Awards in the “Best Solo Performance” category. So get along if you can.
I’m intending/hoping to post some stuff up here during my visit, including some video. Ooooh. In the meantime you can see a short (60 secs) film of The Moon The Moon here. Let us know what you think. Assuming anyone’s t/here? Anyone? Anyone? Class? Bueller?
And if you’re in Edinburgh and spot any of us, come say hello.
More soon (I promise) on the new work we’re making.
