Tell us about your show.
Our show is a one-woman play that addresses youth homelessness through the use of television screens, live cameras and recorded sound. It has been co-written by myself and Calum Finlay, as the culmination of eighteen months of research that I have undertaken at St Mungo’s, New Horizons and Cardboard Citizens. This is the premiere of the show, excluding a few previews in London before we traveled up to Edinburgh!
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
The Shape of the Pain at Summerhall- we cannot wait to see it!
