Fringe 2019: Q&A with Neil Adam and Judy Turner on Sing Me A Song: The Robert Louis Stevenson Show

Name of your show:
Sing Me A Song: The Robert Louis Stevenson Show

How would you describe your show in one sentence?
Dive into the adventurous life of Edinburgh’s favourite son, as told through his letters, published writings and poems (set to music by Neil Adam) – you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll learn heaps.

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

What do you think sets your show apart from all the other Festival offerings?
It’s contemporary and historical – a unique combination of superb acoustic music (yes, we have no PA!) and one of the great literary stories of the 19th century.

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?
Don’t be afraid, don’t let disability hold you back – find your own adventure, and go for it.

How do you #MakeYourFringe itinerary?
Wandering aimlessly through the genres.

What’s the show that you don’t want to miss?
Cat Like Tread’s Iolanthe and the Voices of Hope choir (so far).
