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, Falling Sparrow Productions tells us about their show, The View from the Mountaintop, which they’ll be performing at The Warren.
How would you describe your show in one sentence?
A very dark, black-comedy.
Why Brighton Fringe for this show?
It’s exciting to be part of England’s biggest and best fringe festival. (And it’s also a chance to see so much other theatre while we’re here.)
How have you been preparing for Brighton Fringe?
Learning lines and praying for sunshine.
What do you think sets your show apart from all the other festival offerings?
It’s loosely based on real events but takes a real risk with how the story is presented.
What’s the show that you don’t want to miss at this year’s Brighton Fringe (apart from your own)?
I like the idea of Bad Dad – as I’ve quite recently become a dad, and might well be a bad one.
What’s the best bit of advice you’ve ever been given for performing at a Fringe Festival?
Flyer till the bitter end.
If your show was a flavour of ice cream being sold on Brighton Pier, what would it be?
