SpaceDating: Angel to Vampire!

Broadway Baby chats to Nigel Osner who is bringing a variety of songs and stories in Angel to Vampire!

My passion is my character performances of my own stories and lyrics.


Do you come here often?

I’ve never performed in the Fringe before, but I have come to see it several times, including last year, when I wanted to check out the Fringe as it now is. I’ve also visited Edinburgh for work and to visit relatives

Early to rise or late to bed?

As I get older I am getting up later and going to bed later. When I left the world of regular work in 2008 I still got up really early and, if I went to the gym, would be there by 8. Two years ago on a dark and freezing winter morning, I asked myself why I was continuing to do this? If I see my trainer it is now two hours later than it used to be. I feel this is a mature and sensible approach to daily existence.

Do you have an attraction to Edinburgh?

I do love Edinburgh. I like the rambling and sometimes mysterious nature of the old town, I admire the design of the new town and I enjoy meeting the inhabitants. Also, unlike many, I have always been fairly lucky with the weather. So fingers crossed for the weather this August.

What’s your passion?

My passion is my character performances of my own stories and lyrics. Or may be it’s more an addiction, as I don’t always love it, it doesn’t always deliver, but I can’t do without it. In the past I have said to myself I can leave the performing side and just stick to writing, but that isn’t true.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this article has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
