“We’re still sorta learning the ropes.”
WHO: Nora, Dora and Kat, Performers
WHAT: “It’s 1989. Manchester. A frenzy of drugs, beats and bucket hats. Illegal raves and acid parties. Jumping up and down in a field and throwing two fingers to Thatcher… Remember it? Cus we don’t. We weren’t even born. But Ian was. Ian remembers. Ian reckons we’ve got fuck all now. So let’s go back to the 80’s, neck a brown biscuit and bounce around like idiots. Ian’s gonna show us how… The award-winning cult hit of 2016 is back.”
WHERE: Pleasance Dome (Venue 23)
WHEN: 22:00 (60 min)

Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
No, we were up with the same show, WE ARE IAN, last year. It went down really well, and a couple of people told us we should go back this year. So we are. We hope that is was the right decision. Or else we’re going to be living off beans for the forseeable future.
What’s the biggest thing to have happened to you since Festivals ’16?
Probably the biggest thing that’s happened to us, was when HOME in Manchester asked us to perform with them as part of their takeover of the River Stage at the National Theatre. Which is a pretty big thing. That, or we all enjoyed some massive sandwiches the other day. They were very big things.
Tell us about your show.
So our company is us three, Nora, Dora and Kat. We make, perform and produce all of our own work – we do get people in to give a helping hand occasionally when we can. We’re all really close mates so we decided to start performing together when we finished University. We’re still sorta learning the ropes. We premiered our show, WE ARE IAN, at the Fringe in 2016, and have been on a national tour with it over this past year, and we’re bringing it back! After the Fringe, we’re continuing the tour, going to Plymouth, Manchester, Sheffield and some other really fun places.
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
Because our show is soundtracked completely with original tunes from the Acid House Movement in the late eighties, it will proper get you in the mood for going out and continuing the night. We’d probably recommend going out to somewhere like Sneaky Petes and having a dance. That or Pollyanna across the road from us at Paradise Palms is always really great, and always still going when we get out of our show.
