SpaceDating: Stop!

Following their sell-out Fringe run in 2014, Make Theatre CIC return with their brand new, original show, Stop! We have a little chinwag..

We have a young cast this time round and we’re excited to give them the opportunity to perform on such an international platform.

Tell us about yourself….

We are a young vibrant theatre company performing an original musical written and performed in Somerset.

Do you come here often?

Every other year starting in 2012. This is our third visit. We received the 2014 sell out laurel for our last show O is for Ofsted - which we are super proud of but it makes this years tour that bit more daunting.

Who do you most want to meet at the festival?

Chance encounters with interesting characters are top of our list. We love sitting and listening to snatches of conversations and that’s the main feature of our Fringe show Stop!

Early to rise or late to bed?

We are perfectly suited to both early birds and night owls, as we perform in the mid afternoon slot and so we are the perfect post brunch accompaniment.

What’s your passion?

Instilling a love of performing arts in young people regardless of ability or background. We have a young cast this time round and we’re excited to give them the opportunity to perform on such an international platform.

Are you monogamous to EdFringe, or do you date other festivals?

No other festival has the same allure for us. Edfringe is our one and only. We may take local Somerset mistresses for pre-festival performances, but the Fringe is still the loving spouse that we happily come home to.

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.
