Can you tell me a little bit about yourself and your performing background?
I have been acting since I was four years old and always been interested in devising and writing. I decided last year to make my vision a reality and write a comedic one woman play about online dating which I took to venue in Bristol in february and have now re-written to perform at the fringe.
Tell me about your show, what it is all about?
Tinderella and The Seven Deadly Sins is a one woman comedy depicting the darker side to dating in a lighthearted manner.
How long have you been working on this show and what is it that makes it relevant to audiences in 2018?
I have been working on the show just under two years. Online dating is a trend at the moment and something which I feel is actually quite detrimental to some people’s mental health and self-esteem. I wanted to create something relatable and address these issues in a comedic manner.
