With the 2019 Fringe almost here (I've checked and everything) we've been catching up with a few acts to see if they are excited, terrified or somewhere in between.
Adam from Story Pocket Theatre took the time out to answer a few
questions as they prepare to take David Baddiel's Animalcolm
novel and give it a musical spin.
DarkChat favourite Briony Redman (she gives us awards
as well as the other way around) let us know how supportive
her Mum is as she readies Sketch Artist for the 2018 Fringe.
After seeing him in preview at the Sherman (review here) we asked
comedian Matt Price how he is looking forward to the "comedian's
lottery" that is the Fringe.
We've been fans of Richard Soames for a few years now and caught
up with him as he prepares to make movies at this year's Fringe.
Most recently we saw The Flop in preview review here, from Hijinx
Theatre. Director Ben Pettitt-Wade took the time to tell us about how previous
success has them excited for this year.
Storyteller Danyah MIller has thrilled young audiences (including our own)
for a number of years, this year she'll be performing her self-penned
story "Kika's Birthday" at Pleasance and let us know what to expect.
We've also been out and about as Fringe preview season has been in full swing and we've been seeing how acts have been preparing.
First up we saw Hijinx Theatre's The Flop in Cardiff, as they get ready for
their run at Summerhall.
Gypsy Queen from Hope Theatre will be at Assembly George
Square during August but they also visited the Welsh capital in July.
Stepping away from Theatre and taking in a bit of comedy DarkChat
saw the excellent Matt Price at The Sherman Theatre in Cardiff.
Also at The Sherman Theatre we saw the multi-talented Stuart
Goldsmith preview his stand-up show 'End Of'
Most recently we saw Matt Forde, Brexiting Through the Gift Shop, again
at The Sherman.
How's Your Fringe?
With the 2019 Fringe almost over we asked some of our favourite performers how this year has gone for them and what they've been upto. Naz Osmanoglu, Beach Comet's Theo Macabe and Joe Bor let us know how their Fringe is.
