Please tell me about your 2022 Edinburgh Festival Fringe show
Shattered is a fast-paced 60 min dark (dark) comedy solo show about dating, relationships and sex – but, like, not the good kind. Shattered creates nuanced conversations on the power of shame (he’s a main character) mental health and healing, sexual agency and assault and much more. Using comedy to navigate tragedy, Shattered is a story of resilience, hope and finding humor, even in the moments that hurt the most.
What is the attraction of performing at the Edinburgh Fringe? What do you think of Edinburgh?
I love Edinburgh! I even have a tote bag I got at EdFringe 2019 that says so. The city is walkable, the castle is gorgeous and I love to Instagram the street musicians.
I was attracted to performing at Edinburgh Fringe because when I was in college, I always wanted to visit Edinburgh but, somehow, for one reason or another I kept not being able to go! Years upon years later, I wrote my solo show Shattered and EdFringe seemed like the perfect next step for the show (w/ a massive fundraiser.)
Who inspires you?
How much time do you have? I find inspiration in trees. Seriously, this is not a bit.
Are there other shows you want to check out during the Fringe? What are they?
I’m following a lot of #EdFringe recommendation threads on twitter and my list is growing quickly. I want to check out improv, sketch and stand-up shows and anything circus or burlesque.
I’m such a fan of Fat Rascal Theatre, so I’m excited to see Unfortunate: The Untold Story of Ursula the Sea Witch. I’ll be seeing a lot of solo shows, like Mary Goggin’s Runaway Princess, Priyanka Shetty’s The Elephant in the Room, and Cynthia Shaw’s Velvet Determination at Greenside. My venue C ARTS has an amazing program both on-line and in-person, so I’ll be checking out Elise Robertson’s Imagining Rachel and Terra Taylor Knudson’s Willy’s Lil Virgin Queen (on-line) too.
Oh geez, I’ll be busy.
Finally, ask and answer a question of your own.
Where do I find the improvisers at Fringe and when can we jam?
August 20th at noon – Meadows it is.
