Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
Yes it is… I’m looking forward to eating a baked potato while bathing in IRN-BRU.
Tell us about your show.
My show is called Blank Tiles, it’s about a Scrabble world champion who has recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and now spends his days trying to document his most precious memories. The show played at the Melbourne & Adelaide Fringe festivals and is making it’s European debut in the “burgh”. It is written, produced, performed and pimped out to festivals around the world by yours truly.
The company which I creatively call “Dylan Cole presents” started in the womb almost 30 years ago staging a production called Where is the exit? Hopefully the show will be picked up by big shot Hollywood producers who will turn it into a film staring Tom Hanks and Helen Mirren.
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
For more board game action check out James Cook’s Board Game Smackdown at Free Festival daily at 4:45pm at Bar 50 on Cowgate. It’s a show where performers play some board/card/party/tabletop games live on stage. That’s pretty much it.
