In one sentence tell us about your show.
A tragic (though sometimes funny) tale old in verse about friendship, class, the death of Labour and a really bad idea for a festival.
What made you decide to bring a show this year?
Because I can’t stay away! And this is the best thing I have ever made by a mile and I want the world to see it!
Any advice you’ve heard or can give to anyone coming to the Fringe for the first time?
Do it all. Don’t stop, don’t let up, go crazy until you find yourself weeping on Arthur’s Seat on the last night.
What makes your show stand out from all of the others on offer?
It’s a sixty minute poem all told in strict, metered verse. I’ve never seen anything quite like before. But then, I don’t get out much.
What show, other than your own, do you not want to miss?
Got to catch John Osborne’s Most People Aren’t That Happy Anyway and Jenny Lindsay’s Ire &Salt.
Finally, the essential bit…
