+3 Interview: Good Girl

“I’ve come many years as a punter but this is my first time on the other side of the stage and with my own work.”

WHO: Naomi Sheldon, Actor/Writer

WHAT: “Frank, funny debut storytelling from Naomi Sheldon, in association with Old Red Lion Theatre and Bruised Sky Productions. A bold, provocative look at the darker side of being a good girl. ‘One of these days, am I going to evaporate? Right here?’ GG’s girlhood is unfolding as an inquisitive game, but a mysterious tingling sensation heralds her sexual awakening. Welcome to the 90s, where the only sex education is Madonna.”

WHERE: Just the Tonic at The Mash House (Venue 288)

WHEN: 13:00 (55 min)

Is this your first time to Edinburgh?

Yep, this is my first time doing my own show up here! (Unless you count the student production I did over 10 years ago of a Shakespeare set in a jazz club…) I’ve come many years as a punter but this is my first time on the other side of the stage and with my own work. *bites nails and jumps for joy simultaneously*

Tell us about your show.

Good Girl is a coming-of-age storytelling show about GG, her girlhood, how she navigates the 90s and her BIG FEELINGS. It’s funny and bold and nostalgic whilst asking some hefty questions about self-silencing and how far we’ll go to be a ‘good girl’ (or boy). I wrote it (my debut show) and my husband, Matt Peover has directed it and produced it. We’re a tight team. We have been working in association with the Old Red Lion and have previewed there before Edinburgh. Hopefully, we’ll be taking Good Girl back down to London (and all around) post Edinburgh.

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

You must catch Jayde Adams’ new show Jayded. I’m looking forward to catching Rebecca Humphries Prom Kween again- it’s going to be great. Martin Murphy’s Victim is dark and funny. There’s also the super cute and hilarious Lucy Pearman’s Maid of Cabbage. So many great shows to see!
