An ac­tor’s slant on what’s hot and what’s not at the Fringe

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

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.
