In the first of a two part special, Wales Arts Review’s OffScript podcast comes from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, where Gary Raymond has been soaking up the atmosphere and talking to as many people as he can pin down for a few minutes. For the OffScript at the Fringe episode, Gary talks to National Dance Company Wales producer Kate Perridge and gets some advice on how to tackle his first Fringe experience, then goes on to talk with two of NDCWales’ dancers backstage, Camille Giraudeau and Rob Bridger after their afternoon performance of Folk at the Zoo Southside. He also looks at Alan Harris‘ new play for Dirty Protest, Sugar Baby, and talks to Neil Docking, writer of the Welsh play that took the Fringe by storm, Revlon Girl.
