Skrimshanks: Edinburgh Fringe 2016 interview



Hello. How are you today?

M:We’re fine thank you for asking.

S: In a little bit of pain.

M: No more than usual.

S: And we like it.

M: Reminds us we’re alive.

At this stage, how closely does your programme blurb match the content of your show?

M: Our show doesn’t have any content.

S: We didn’t want to get above ourselves.

What are your tips for getting people to see your show?

M: We’ve been quite inspired by recent events.

S: We’re going to make bold, unfulfillable promises.

M: And if anyone challenges us…

S: We’ll just say… (shrugs)

M&S: (uncontrollable laughter)

Who are you sharing a flat with this festival and how will you help each other survive the month?

M: We’re sharing a wet patch under some stone steps.

S: With the rats.

M: It’s very central.

S: And there’s moss to lick if we become faint with hunger.

Any shows you’re particularly excited about seeing?

S: Mike Atherton’s contemporary dance piece.

M: Sandi Toksvig in Grease.

S: American High school musical Theatre

M: Oh I love them.

S: They come every year but never seem to get any older.

M: So inspiring.

Other than the great shows, what else are you looking forward to about your trip to Edinburgh this year?

M: Sharing a beautiful city

S: for an entire month

M:with some of the worlds most…

S: Deluded

M: Self absorbed

S: Fantasists

S&M: (Hysterical Laughter)

What’s your topping at The Baked Potato Shop on Cockburn Street?

M: Missed opportunities and debt.

S: …with grated cheese

Here’s a space to write about anything you want. Go for it.

S: Thanks for reading this.

M: We’re so grateful to you for giving us your time.

M: You lovely person

S: You’re great.

M: Whoever you are.

S: So mysterious

M: And beautiful.

S: Probably.

M: One way to find out

S: Put your money where your mouth is.

M: Show yourself.

S: Look us up.

M: We’d love to meet you.
