With over 3000 shows at the world’s biggest arts festival, here at The ReviewsHub,we want to make the job of choosing your Edinburgh Festival Fringe shows that little bit easier. So here’s Danny Wainwright from Let Them Call It Mischiefanswering our annual Five Fast Fringe Questions.
In one sentence tell us about your show.
It’s Dracula, but with twists and lots of laughs.
What made you decide to bring a show this year?
We’ve done lots of shows on the London Fringe and it seemed like the right time for us to bring a show up to the Edinburgh Fringe. We’ve packed the Dracula story into an hour, so it’s a fast-paced, funny show. Perfect for the middle of the afternoon in Edinburgh
Any advice you’ve heard or can give to anyone coming to the Fringe for the first time?
Sleep. Sleep whenever and wherever you have the chance. Sleep. You’ll regret it if you don’t come weekthree. Trust me.
What makes your show stand out from all of the others on offer? (Don’t say that it’s because you’re in it!)
It’s a fast, funny, silly and all new adaptation of Dracula with five amazing actors playing all the characters. If you want to laugh for an hour in the afternoon, this is the show for you. You might even leave thinking a bit deeper about some of the themes that you hadn’t even realised you had seen.
What show, other than your own, do you not want to miss?
So many, but if I have to pick one, then Beasts present Mr Edinburgh 2016. If you’ve seen them before, you know it’s going to be amazing. If you haven’t, you don’t know what you’re missing.
Finally, the boring but essential bit…
