Self Helpless! is a show filled with insights to help you get through life providing you have good looks, no opinions and can tap dance! We talked with its star, Sandra Hale.
We can’t all be selfless, confident, honest and principled, so if like me you’re shallow, insecure and needy then this show is for you! I will help you make these negative traits work for you because as a people pleaser, I am eager to share my pearls of wisdom and experience with you and to give out advice…not out of any generosity of spirit but more because I want the publicity, popularity and gifts!
What does Edinburgh mean to you?
An escape from my real life which is intense and harder. Attention from strangers. To give my skin a rest from the sun. To behave badly and no one will tell
Who inspires you and why?
My ex-husband who has shown me that the love of many is better than the love of just one
