Our Brighton Bites series offers short, witty and slightly tongue-in-cheek insights into the offerings at England’s largest arts festival. Beth Symons, Co-founder of Brighton Blonde Productions, tells us about their show,A Glass of Nothing,performing at TheWarren.
How would you describe your show in one sentence?
A dark comedy where a woman’s imagination fulfils her every wish and leads her disturbingly astray.
Is this your first visit to Brighton Fringe, if so what interesting tales have you been told about what to expect?
No. We’ve all been here before in other guises, and can show you the scabs. We know what a vibrant, exciting and madcap experience the Fringe can be.
How has the show developed on the way to Brighton?
This show was written and produced for Brighton Fringe 2016 so it’s a world premiere. It’s born out of a collaboration between a twenty-something comedy actor, and a fifty-something writer. Age plus beauty = success! (We hope.)
How have you been preparing for Brighton Fringe?
Burlesque lessons, drinking heavily and intensive rehearsals around Brighton. Standard.
What do you think sets your show apart from all the other festival offerings?
It’s a ‘three-fer’. A three-hander comedy, that presents three interrelated tales. Bobby bargain.
What’s the show that you don’t want to miss at this year’s Brighton Fringe (apart from your own!)?
Definitely will catch Chris Green as Tina C: Eating Country, and the burlesque of Showtime with Cabaret Boheme with the brilliant Veronica Blacklace.
If your show was a flavour of Brighton Rock, what would it be?
Either a Neapolitan of three gorgeous flavours, or a solid parsnip.
