As we near the end of our month long run at the Edinburgh Fringe Fest I thought I should write a little post about the highs and lows of the past month or so!  In the lead up to Edinburgh we were fortunate enough to perform at The Rose Theatre in Kingston because of our IYAF Award. After lots of discussions following the festival we have come to the conclusion that it is THE BEST festival we have ever been a part of. The peop...

Last Thursday we received an email from Brighton Fringe telling us we had been nominated for an Award. We were over the moon. To be nominated was an amazing feeling and we hastily made arrangements to get back down to Brighton for the awards  ceremony which was to be held in The Warren's main stage space on Sunday.

Tom started at Oxford School of Acting and myself and Doug have been involved in a number of projects. I did a devised version of Treasure Island with Lamphouse Theatre and Doug took on a role + created the music for a children's show called 'The Nose That Nobody Picked'. As well as that we hav...

So we have just finished the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and wow! What a whirlwind ! We arrived at the beginning of the month with wide eyes and bushy tales and an opportunity to do what we loved. We couldn't quite have anticipated what happened after our first few performances though. I was still feeling nervous and after the first show ( 5 in our audience) we were congratulated and told we were on to something special. It's t...
