Brighton Bites is our series of short, witty and slightly tongue-in-cheek insights into the offerings at England’s largest arts festival. Writer Ian Dixon Potter of Golden Age Theatre Company tell us about his showBoy Stroke Girl, performing at The Waren, Brighton.
How would you describe your show in one sentence?
Boy Stroke Girl is a play about what happens when a young man develops a passion for someone without knowing their gender.
Is this your first visit to Brighton Fringe, if so what interesting tales have you been told about what to expect?
This is my first visit. I’ve been told it’s what the Edinburgh Fringe was like a few years ago.
How has the show developed on the way to Brighton?
I’ve written the play especially for The Brighton Fringe – short and snappy.
How have you been preparing for Brighton Fringe?
We’ve just completed the auditions and had the first read-through. After a few workshops, rehearsals begin at the end of the month.
What do you think sets your show apart from all the other festival offerings?
It’s a unique play about a unique relationship. After tens of thousands of years of people falling in love, these two have done it differently.
What’s the show that you don’t want to miss at this year’s Brighton Fringe (apart from your own!)?
Salmon and Wales by The Glass Moon Theatre Company.
If your show was a flavour of Brighton Rock, what would it be?
