Tonight, we turned right on to the street outside our flat. Three fliers and four minutes later we had made it as far as Candlemaker Row and before we knew it, had been ushered into Greyfriars Kirk House by the piano player of a cut-price show, which was due to start in minutes. I’m happy to report that Playing With Myself was a hit in mine and Steinunn’s book. Go see it! The music, the lyrics, the story and, of course, the performance were all first class.
Here’s the blurb:
Taste the whirling life of a jobbing actress. Ingredients: 2 professionals – theatre, 9 zany scenes, a snatch of songs and a hint of magic. Method: Fold in laughter, drizzle with sauce and serve on a bed of quirkiness. A recipe for success!
Sarah Desmond sings and acts whilst Paul Moylan accompanies her on piano. The musical is a collaborative effort between Sarah and Paul, and some family members.
