With over 3000 shows at the world’s biggest arts festival, here at The ReviewsHub,we want to make the job of choosing your Edinburgh Festival Fringe shows that little bit easier. So here’s Haydn Whiteside fromF*cking Men answering our annual Five Fast Fringe Questions.
In one sentence tell us about your show.
F*cking Menis acharming, explicit and explorative tale about ten gay men in London and their sexual encounters with one another.
What made you decide to bring a show this year?
Edinburgh Fringe has always been on my bucket list, I’ve been a couple of times as a punter but never as a performer, so when the opportunity arose to take this show up to the Fringe it was an easy decision on my part.
Any advice you’ve heard or can give to anyone coming to the Fringe for the first time?
“See as many shows as you can, don’t drink every day, don’t fall in love and remember to SLEEP”. Sound advice from my best friend who was a Fringe Survivor 2014.
What makes your show stand out from all of the others on offer? (Don’t say that it’s because you’re in it!)
It’s an honest portrayal of human connection, relationships, and friendship and looks at how not all the situations are the most beneficial for both parties. We also don’t wear many clothes so hopefully, that isn’t a deterrent.
What show, other than your own, do you not want to miss?
Cannot wait to seeTrainspotting, another King’s Head Theatre production which is going to be on at Assembly George Square Studios. Saw it when it was in London and can’t wait to rave with them again!
