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 Vic Llewellyn of The Castle Builder answering our annual Five Fast Fringe Questions.
In one sentence tell us about your show.
The Castle Builder is joyously ramshackle theatre-gig celebrating DIY artists, makers, builders and creators everywhere.
What made you decide to bring a show this year?
We really wanted to spread the love we feel for these artists on the margin of society. Performing our show in Edinburgh will give us a platform to show our work in the best possible light.
Any advice you’ve heard or can give to anyone coming to the Fringe for the first time?
Keep calm, don’t take it personally, structure your time well, keep hydrated, and enjoy yourself.
What makes your show stand out from all of the others on offer? (Don’t say that it’s because you’re in it!)
I think the fact that is quite difficult to define what it is that makes it so different from other theatre shows. There have been post-show discussions as to what theatrical genre it belongs in.
What show, other than your own, do you not want to miss?
My old friend, Tim Crouchs’ Adler &Gibb at Summerhall. He never fails to amaze.
Finally, the boring but essential bit…
