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, Let Them Call It Mischief tells us about their show, Dracula, which they’ll be performing at The Warren.
How would you describe your show in one sentence?
A fast-paced, funny, silly new adaptation of a Gothic classic.
Why Brighton Fringe for this show?
Brighton is a great place to come and do theatre – the audiences are great, the people who run the theatres are awesome and it’s by the sea. What’s not to love!
How have you been preparing for Brighton Fringe?
I’ve been shielding imaginary fish and chips from imaginary seagulls
What do you think sets your show apart from all the other festival offerings?
Fake moustaches, garlic and dodgy accents…
What’s the show that you don’t want to miss at this year’s Brighton Fringe (apart from your own)?
I really want to see Nick Hall’s show – and it will be ace to have Beasts on straight after us on Saturday night so we’ll all stick around and watch them after our show!
What’s the best bit of advice you’ve ever been given for performing at a Fringe Festival?
Book 3 days off work when it finishes. You’ll need it to recover
If your show was a flavour of ice cream being sold on Brighton Pier, what would it be?
Tutti Frutti covered in loads of red sauce.
Dracula runs at Brighton Fringe 5-7 May
