Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
This is my third full fringe. I was first up in 2011 as part of musical comedy double act Pistol & Jack. Last year I was up at Underbelly with my play Villain starring Maddie Rice.
What’s the biggest thing to have happened to you since Festivals ’16?
It’s been a very exciting year, Villain was published just before a London transfer and during that run at Kings Head Theatre we got an Offie nomination.
Victim being published by Bloomsbury Methuen Drama before we even opened up here was probably the most exciting thing.
Tell us about your show.
I wrote and directed Victim, it’s produced by Bruised Sky Productions who were formed in 2009 by James Kermack, largely formed from members of the Old Vic New Voices company who did 24 Hour Plays in 2006. It stars Louise Beresford who is a fantastically versatile actress giving the role the perfect blend of comedy and menace. It previewed at Old Red Lion Theatre but opened in Edinburgh and we are in the process of moving towards a London run and possible tour.
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
Good Girl by Naomi Sheldon is a fantastic new piece of work by a fantastically skilled actress.
