An actor’s slant on what’s hot and what’s not at the Fringe
The Edinburgh Fringe is the biggest arts festival in the world and hundreds of people from Rutherglen, Cambuslang and the surrounding area will head through to catch some shows and soak up the atmosphere.
So we asked Rutherglen actor Scott Kyle what his top tips would be, along with his own show, Loranga, Masarin and Dartanjang at the Pleasance Dome.
He said: “Umar Ahmed was one of the starts of How To Make a Killing in Bollywood and he’s in a show called My Name Is...
“It’s the true story of a family from Pollokshields, the father was Asian and the mother was white and their girl gets caught in the middle.
“They’ve toured with it and it also starts Karen Bartke, who was in Scot Squad.
“I’ll definitely be going to see that.
“The company I’m working with have another play called The Year of the Hare. It’s got Dave McKay in. He’s been in things like Braveheart and Rab C Nesbitt.”
The Year of the Hare is about a middle-aged, middle-class, man who works 12-hour days in his office cubicle.
However, a chance encounter with an eccentric hare re-awakens his lust for life and he goes on a surreal journey through a world with rules and values he no longer accepts.
It’s on at the Pleasance Dome.
My Name Is... is on at the Northern Stage at Summerhall.
