The Day Job: Edinburgh Fringe 2013

I am heading up to Edinburgh Fringe three plays this year that I have designed. Last year I had an awesome time designing a play called Jigsy starring Les Dennis. This year, I have a real mix; all brilliant, all VERY different.

Currently touring the country previewing is The Collision of Things by Move to Stand. Playing at the Pleasance Courtyard, Pleasance 2

"An award-winning show about three friends who lose one life to gain another. The Collision of Things combines a razor sharp script, original live music and international cast to unearth a delicate story of home, foreignness and speaking the mother tongue.  This is the tale of a young couple, their lodger and London. It is about a longing for new life, which overcomes us all, and how we can re-find each other in the darkest moments. The show uses striking physical theatre and compelling storytelling to draw you into a narrative of tragedy and transcendence."

Across the courtyard is Making News by Robert Khan and Tom Salinsky. In Pleasance 1 at the Pleasance Courtyard.

"It’s the start of another 24 hour news cycle and Rachel Clarke has been suddenly promoted as the BBC’s newest Head of News. When a crisis erupts she has to confront rivals from within and without, as well as deciding how to report on the story that threatens to bring down the BBC itself.
This fast-moving comedy satire is the follow-up to the hugely successful play COALITION which premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe 2012."

And finally, a piece that will differ at every performance, The Phill Jupitus Experiment created by Deborah Frances-White

"Phill Jupitus goes head to head with a disembodied Voice on a microphone who will interrogate, provoke and cajole him to create dark-hearted comedy mayhem. See the hidden depths of the human unconscious pushed to their illogical conclusions in this unforgettable, unmissable, electrifying and hilarious show. Voices in Your Head just got even freakier."
