Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
This is my first time bringing a show to the festival although I spent two rain-soaked days there last year and absolutely loved it!
Tell us about your show.
The Older Brothers’ Almanac began out of telling stories from my childhood. I grew up with three older brothers and we did a lot of crazy, funny, violent things. It absolutely shaped show I am. I started working it into smaller pieces years ago and when I saw the Fringe last summer I realized that it was the perfect place to bring it all together. I reached out to Zach Evenson first.
We went to The National Theater Conservatory together a decade ago and I don’t think there is another actor who feels more like family to me. Then I went to Wes Grantom to see if he’d direct, again, we’ve worked together a bunch and we’ve fallen into comfortable grooves in the rehearsal room. Since then we’ve been refining and shaping the piece (much of my actual childhood has disappeared and been replaced by events that can be told in 50min). We’re hoping to get a run in NYC at a late night venue when we return.
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
