IT may have been delir­ium from the lack of sleep a mother of a six-mon­thold and three-year-old func­tions on, but Scot­tish per­former Shona Reppe knows how to cre­ate a highly imag­i­na­tive show.

The ev­i­dence is in her 2008 pro­duc­tion Potato Needs A Bath, which she will present at Awe­some In­ter­na­tional Arts Fes­ti­val for Bright Young Things from Oc­to­ber 3 to 7.

“I came up with the ti­tle af­ter imag­in­ing a potato sit­ting in a bread tin be­ing scrubbed with a tooth­brush,” Reppe said from her home near Ed­in­burgh.

“I was im­mersed in that world of bath time, feed­ing, nap­pies; it made sense to make a show around these fa­mil­iar rou­tines and I’ve toured it all over the world.

“It’s a tiny, gen­tle and fun play for three to five-year-olds (and their par­ents) about a lady and her fruit and veg­etable friends.”
