Berlin - Failed States One: Somalia

Last week, I was lucky enough to be sent off to Berlin to meet documentary theatre Director Hans-Werner Kroesinger, and watch his new play, Failed States One: Somalia. This is the first in the series of Failed States with Hebbel Am Ufer. 


I met Hans-Werner in the café of HAU1 after a mad dash from the airport and an extremely expensive taxi ride; it was safe to say I stuck to the tube after this. It was really interesting to find out more about his work on Somalia in…

Today has felt very strange not being surrounded by performances and flyers. 

Here are a few pictures from the renowned Royal Mile.…

Edinburgh Fringe

So this is not only my first day at Edinburgh fringe this year but my first time ever and I am very excited to be here. After a long journey sat too close to the toilet I finally arrived into the city at 4.30pm pumped and ready to see some theatre. All my belongings got thrown into my room and I fled to The White Horse to find Kelly Jones in her pink metallic dress, clutching a cardboard cut out of George Orwell.


We caught up on her show Dating George Orwell and made…
