It’s that time of year when we feature our annual series of Fringe preview Q & A’s. Next up, it’s the turn of The Black Cat.

In one sentence tell us about your show.

The Black Cat is a little like a live radio-show and, with dark humour and claws bared, it tears up the process of adaptation like a madman taking out a rage on a helpless pet.

What made you decide to bring a show this year?

The Fringe is all about presenting as wide a range of shows as possible to a diverse audience, and this show really feels like something Edinburgh audiences can have a laugh getting their fangs into.

Any advice you’ve heard or can give to anyone coming to the Fringe for the first time?

Allow yourself genuine downtime. Take a walk up Arthur’s Seat; get some fresh air; keep perspective.

What makes your show stand out from all the others on offer?

It’s a unique blend of narrative-driven playwriting and naughty commentary by two performers who have a fairly bad attitude towards actually doing what the script tells them to do.

What show, other than your own, do you not want to miss?

Our friends Milk Presents are bringing the astonishing Joan back to the Fringe this year. If you missed out last time, don’t do it again!

Finally, the boring but essential bit:

Name of the show: The Black Cat

Venue: Underbelly Cowgate (Venue 61)  

Dates: 3 August – 20 August 2017

Time: 19.20 – 20.20
