+3 Interview: Two Sides of the Curtain

“We’re really excited to show the new and improve version this year at the Fringe.”

WHO: Jack Kelly, Director/Writer/Producer/Supporting Actor

WHAT: “Erich and Ada are separated by one of history’s most famous man-made divisions: the Berlin Wall. They both live in times of great global and personal shifts that throw their futures into disillusionment. But the times that Erich and Ada live in are not the same. When Erich journeys to the other side, he not only crosses an ideological line, but a temporal one as well, traveling 25 years in to the past. Stuck in between space and time, Erich and Ada’s relationship becomes a bittersweet take on star-crossed lovers.”

WHERE: theSpace on North Bridge (Venue 36)

WHEN: 19:05 (50 min)

Is this your first time to Edinburgh?

This will be my second time at Edinburgh Fringe, after taking another original piece TOYS in 2015, which I wrote and directed and lead man of Two Sides of the Curtain Andrew Crouch also starred in.

Tell us about your show.

I wrote and directed Two Sides of the Curtain and the show had a small but successful run in Brighton. Since then the piece has been tweaked and cut and messed around with and we’re really excited to show the new and improve version this year at the Fringe. I’ll probably look into developing the piece into a full two act play after the Fringe, though the length now is not a problem and works just fine.

What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?

I am definitely keen to camp out at the summerhouse and see as much stuff there as possible especially in the Paines Plough’s Roundabout Venue (Every Brilliant Thing is a must see).

However my top tip would have to be the Wardrobe Ensemble, who have their new show this year Education, Education, Education. These guys are great, physical and hilarious theatre.
