Our Brighton Bites series offers short, witty and slightly tongue-in-cheek insights into the offerings at England’s largest arts festival. Here, Christine Kempelltells us about her show,Would Like To Meet, performing at The Latest Music Bar.
How would you describe your show in one sentence?
Would Like To Meet is a compilation of cringe-worthy dating disasters, excruciatingly embarrassing speed dating scenarios and scandalously shocking statistics!
Is this your first visit to Brighton Fringe. If so, what interesting tales have you been told about what to expect?
I have been coming to Brighton Fringe Festival for the past 15 years but this is the first time I have put on a play. I have been told that it’s chaotic. I’m really looking forward to it!
How has the show developed on the way to Brighton Fringe?
We are on the gazillionth draft of the play so it has changed and adapted over the past 18 months of preparation. We performed a full-length version of WLTM at the Rialto Theatre over the Valentine’s weekend, last February. We sold out! This version has been cut and there are new stories and statistics so it’s the same show- but different.
How have you been preparing for Brighton Fringe?
By scouring the Internet for interesting statistics and by getting my friends drunk so they spill the beans on their own dating disasters.
What do you think sets your show apart from other festival offerings?
It’s topical, it’s of the moment and it’s funny. Plus we’ve got a great logo.
If your show was a flavour of Brighton Rock, what would it be?
Cherry. Like lip gloss.
