Little Thing, Big Thing is a darkly comic thriller from Fishamble by Donal O’Kelly, both double Fringe First winners. In it, an ex-con and nun are chased across Ireland for a roll of film… why the bleedin’ fuss? Sorcha Fox and Donal O’Kelly play Martha and Larry, who take a high octane jump into the world of international energy skullduggery, awakening passions they thought were dead.
AAA caught up with O’Kelly for a chat earlier this week.
- How has your Fringe been so far?
It’s been great, as my play Little Thing, Big Thing has attracted good houses and great reviews in Assembly 2 George Square.
- Tell us about the show you’re in…
- What’s the audience reaction been so far?
- You’ve had some great reviews – do you read them?
- There’s thousands of shows on – why should Fringe-goers fork out to see yours?
- Are there any other shows on this year you’d recommend?
- What’s on your hit list to see?
- What do you like to do in Edinburgh on your day off?
- Can you recommend a bar or restaurant in Edinburgh?
The Mosque Kitchen has saved my life so many times it automatically tops the list. Joseph Pearce’s on Leith Walk is cool.
- What’s the strangest thing you’ve seen at the Fringe this year?
The Palestinian stand-up comic Ayman Nahas at Forest Fringe did a hilarious ventriloquist act with his dummy – his shrink. Really unexpected and brilliant.
Little Thing, Big Thing, Assembly George Square Studio 2, until August 30, 3.40pm, www.edfringe.com
