FIVE FAST FRINGE QUESTIONS with Whore: A Kids Play

It’s that time of year when we feature our annual series of Fringe preview Q & A’s. Next up it’s the turn of Whore: A Kid’s Play

In one sentence tell us about your show.

Mean Girls meets Spring Awakening with a heavy dose of Dance, Dance, Revolution.

What made you decide to bring a show this year?

Every American, whether they know it or not, dreams of going to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. And why shouldn’t they? It seems like a magical experience.

Any advice you’ve heard or can give to anyone coming to the Fringe for the first time?

Some mistakes will be made, there’s no escaping it. But if you bring your best work and have great collaborators to take the journey with you, you’re much less likely to have regrets.

What makes your show stand out from all of the others on offer? (Don’t say that it’s because you’re in it!)

I haven’t seen all the shows on offer so it’s hard to say. What I can say is our show is funny, energetic, slightly subversive, maybe a little naughty. That being said, it’s also about friendships and characters that feel alive to us – this was something we never once lost sight of.

What show, other than your own, do you not want to miss?

Cirk La Putyka’s Batacchio. Lear from John Scott Dance. Zinnie Harris’s Oresteia. Meow Meow’s Little Mermaid. Those are just a few that look absolutely amazing. I’m also looking forward to discovering shows I haven’t heard about yet.

Finally, the boring but essential bit:

Name of the show: Whore: A Kid’s Play

Venue: Greenside at Infirmary Street

Dates: 4 August – 26 August 2017

Time: 16:05
