SpaceDating: Bull

We're chatting to the cast of Bull, coming to EdFringe '16. Nobody likes a sore loser...

If you don't believe us, come see it for yourself. You won't be disappointed. Promise.


Tell us about yourself….

Thomas: Well, there's not a huge amount to tell, I mean - where do you want me to start? I guess I've always considered myself -

Isobel: They aren't asking about you Thomas. They want to know about the play.

Tony: Yeah, Jesus, you thought we were all here for an interview about you?

Thomas: I...well, I just -

Isobel: Sorry to disappoint you Thomas, but no. This isn't your fifteen minutes of fame.

The play, it's fantastic.

Tony: If you don't believe us, come see it for yourself. You won't be disappointed. Promise.

Do you come here often?

Tony: Well, Isobel and I have been round here a few times, haven't we Iz?

Isobel: I can't remember.

Thomas: No, no they haven't. They've - we've never been here before.

Early to rise or late to bed?

Tony: Both. That's me all over. And Isobel I suppose. Thomas is more...

Isobel: Sedentary.

Tony: Yeah. Sedentary.

What’s your passion?

Tony: Winning. It just gets better and better with practice...

Isobel: What's your passion Thomas? What makes you 'tick'?

Thomas: I don't have to answer that. What makes anyone bloody 'tick'?! I guess my passion would be my work.

Isobel: God, you animal.

What’s better. Physical theatre or stand up comedy?

Thomas: Stand up I'd say.

Tony: Stand up he'd say. I'm more of the physical type.

Can we get a second date?

Thomas: Don't look at me. Isobel?

Isobel: I don't think pimping me out is going to sell our show Thomas.

Tony: No, unfortunately I'm afraid you're not exactly my type.

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.
