Back by popular demand for 2017, our Brighton Bites series offer short, witty and slightly tongue-in-cheek insights into shows performing at England’s largest arts festival. Hopefully, they will whet your appetite to try something new at this year’s Brighton Fringe.
Here, Blue Heart Theatre tell us about their show, Couples+Pairs, which they’ll be performing at The Warren Theatre Box.
How would you describe your show in one sentence?
Short Plays about love, in all its pain and glory!
Why Brighton Fringe for this show?
The best Fringe event in England. Sure, why wouldn’t you?
How have you been preparing for Brighton Fringe?
Having the pints (and rehearsals) in Dublin’s dodgier watering holes.
What do you think sets your show apart from all the other festival offerings?
The audience will help choose which plays we do each night. Scary for us. Fun for them! Which is how it should be.
What’s the show that you don’t want to miss at this year’s Brighton Fringe (apart from your own)?
The Ruffian on the Stair by Joe Orton presented by Lantern Theatre. Productions of it are rare.
What’s the best bit of advice you’ve ever been given for performing at a Fringe Festival?
Don’t take getting an audience of only three people personally!
If your show was a flavour of ice cream being sold on Brighton Pier, what would it be?
Tutti Frutti- a very colourful confectionary, with a different delight in every bite!
Couples+Pairs runs at Brighton Fringe 23-27 May 2017
