Fringe 2019: Q&A with Stefan Smart on I am Mark

Name of your show: 

I AM MARK

How would you describe your show in one sentence? 

A stunning solo dramatisation of The Greatest Story Ever Told.

Is this the first time that you are performing at the Fringe? 

Yes.

What do you think sets your show apart from all the other Festival offerings? 

There will always be space for comedy and musicals at the Fringe, as well as a place for more taboo subjects. The question is: Is there a place for religious/faith-based performances as well?

The Centre’s Fringe showcase is exploring and reacting to the challenges we face in today’s world by sharing stories in all their forms – what is your show saying?

Faith-based storytelling isn’t necessarily for wusses. It has the capacity to delight and disturb, challenge and comfort, as anything else on the scene. This dramatic recreation by one actor of our oldest version of the stories of Jesus is as prescient and powerful today as it ever was.
