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 Felicity Ward answering our annual Five Fast Fringe Questions.
In one sentence tell us about your show.
It’s about a lady with control issues who left her overnight bag (wallet/laptop/keys/passport inside) on a bus just before she left town for three days.
What made you decide to bring a show this year?
My legs get too complacent about how good they’ve got it on flat paved roads, so I like to give them cobbles for a month. Then they’re really humble when they get back to London.
Any advice you’ve heard or can give to anyone coming to the Fringe for the first time?
Pack for winter, then, be occasionally surprised when it’s warm.
What makes your show stand out from all of the others on offer?(Don’t say that it’s because you’re in it!)
Asking someone who is deeply self-deprecating by nature to sell themselves, is a fool’s game. I have no idea what the other 3000 shows are like – what if we’ve all written the same one accidentally. It would be like a terrible Shakespeare Festival that only showed one play with different people in it, 18 hours of the day, for a month.
What show, other than your own, do you not want to miss?
Do not miss Rhys Nicholson, Susan Calman, Susie Yousseff,Nazeem Hussain, John Hastings and Josie Long. There are too many. Just go see some great stuff guys.
Finally, the boring but essential bit…
