Today Broadway Baby is having a chat with Katie Merritt, whose company is performing Stories from Around the World this Fringe!
I like theatre that gives you a bit of everything, physical storytelling, dance, music, comedy and a splash of magic!
Tell us about yourself….
I am a fun-loving, adventurous type of person who loves a good party & loves to explore the world. I am most at home when I am going to new places, meeting new people and exploring new cultures!
Do you come here often?
This is my first time! I have watched from the sides in previous years, but this time I am raring to go & I am ready to find people to come on this adventure with me! I have heard that there are lots of people here from all over the world with lots of different ideas and I have 3 full weeks to meet everyone! So it’s PERFECT!
Early to rise or late to bed?
Early to rise! The morning is a beautiful time and it’s when I am at my most energetic! However I don’t need too much sleep and I would much rather be out discovering things than having lots of sleep. Life is for living. Isn’t it?
What’s your favourite Edinburgh bar or restaurant?
There is a wonderful Thai restaurant called Dusit on Thistle Street that does an incredible Pad Thai, that reminds me of my time in Asia. It is a real home from home for me and reminds me of all the wonderful things I saw and did there.
What’s better. Physical theatre or stand up comedy?
Funny physical theatre! I like theatre that gives you a bit of everything, physical storytelling, dance, music, comedy and a splash of magic! I have a short concentration span so I like things that are action packed and keep me on my toes.
Can we get a second date?
Any time! You can find me at thespace@ Surgeons Hall or SpaceTriplex in August generally. Why don’t you come and find me?
