Women's Hour will be in the Anatomy Lecture Theatre at Summerhall, every other day at 2pm, for our 6th Fringe as Sh!t Theatre. On our days off (days Off! The Gentleman's Fringe! the Edinburgh Lite! The Month of Semi-Sanity!), Eric Sigmundsson will be premiering his first ever solo show Mitches Movie Pitches for the second year of what we are grandiosely naming The Sh!t Theatre Artist Support Scheme. Last year Ellie Stamp came with us with her first solo show Are You Lonesome Tonight?, a brilliant performance art experiment about mental health and Elvis, which won an Arts Award Voice Award and was nominated for the Arches Brick. So y'know, high standards. Eric's show is going to be great. And it'll be even more great if you help him with the huge costs of bringing a show to the Fringe. He's got no help at all, it's all coming out of his own pocket so anything you can donate to him would really help:
Also on our days off (days Off! The Fringe Lay In! The half-price-hut-of-a-run! The No Going Back!) we are of course in another show, this time with one-quarter of Burger Van and our favourite stand-up ever, Phil O'Shea with his show Philip O'Shea Turns 30-Live. We'll be playing wolves, ducks, turtles, librarians and some songs. Every other day at the Banshee Labyrinth (PBH Free Fringe) at 7pm.
Here's Phil's promo image:
It's our kinda show.
If you won't be up at the Fringe, you have a chance to see a preview of Phil's show in London this Thursday 28th May at the Pleasance Islington
We'll also be doing what can only very vaguely be described as a performance of our new work-in-progress Letters to Windsor House. 8pm, £5 for both shows.
ALSO previews of Women's Hour include Latitude Festival, PULSE Festival and the very brilliant Incoming Festival at the New Diorama. Women's Hour is on Saturday 6th June at 7pm, tickets are again only £5 and it'll be fun please come we've sold no tickets what?
