They left her in a bin, outside Papa Johns in Luton. She has made a comedy show to find out who, what and where they are. Armed with only a loo roll as a prop, she combines stand-up, characters and clowning to bring her imagined family to life. A debut solo hour from one half of sublime duo That Pair.”

Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
Not first time at the fringe but first solo show. I have been at the fringe in many guises. Flyerer, puppeteer, actor one half of duo and now just me ( and a massive bin and a twelve pack of Loo Rolls).
Tell us about your show.
My show in Edinburgh is a character comedy show about a woman called Pat who was left in a bin by her family. She spends the whole show pretending she’s various members of her long lost family whilst also telling the audience about the various benefits of Loo roll.
It’s been incredibly fun to write, make and perform. I have a brilliant director Matthew Crosby and Technical support from Jonathan Monkhouse. I started making the show when I had a cold and was using lots of Loo roll and thought about how funny it would be to base a show around the stuff.
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
Anything from Free Association they do lots of great improv. I’m in one of their teams and they are super.
Jon Pointing : Act Natural is brilliant he plays an acting coach Cayden Hunter who is ridiculous.
Lorna Shaw: Ava Rage has made a brilliant show that is about being average. Music , stand up and stories from her.
James Rowland : 100 Words for Love is the 2nd part of his trilogy of one man shows it’s super.
