Myself and the rest of the cast are now nearly halfway through our run of The World Over (written by Keith Bunin) at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The World Over is a dark comedy fantasy for grown-ups, and follows my character Adam as he travels the four corners of the globe in search of the land of Gildoray, from which he was banished at birth. It spans Adam’s life from late adolescence into his geriatric years and is a great physical and dramatic challenge for myself as an actor. In addition to acting duties, I got heavily involved with choreographing the sword fights.
So far we have received great audience feedback, and the show keeps getting better with every performance. Most of the cast have been favourably mentioned by name in reviews, though reviewers have not warmed to the style and tone of the script itself. I am incredibly proud of the work everyone is doing and am looking forward to the rest of the run.
