In Brief


We asked MEL CANTWELL, creative director of THE KABUKI DROP to answer our Five With Fringe questions ahead of her show, SLAP AND TICKLE. 

Describe your show in 3 words:

Orchestral, anarchic, endearing.


What is your show all about?

It’s about friendship and individuality. The work celebrates diversity, talent and artistic endeavour in a way that I think people will find surprising, hilarious and moving.


Favourite place for a post-show drink?

There are so many choices at Fringe time…The Pleasure Garden is always a fun place to be.


How would you describe your FW experience?

The Fringe experience is a mix of chaos, adrenaline and hard work. It’s a great platform for premiering shows, and there’s a real sense of camaraderie being in the company of so many artists putting their work out into the world.



Apart from your show, what other shows would you recommend?

Anything in The Blue Room Theatre’s Summer Nights season – they’ve curated a really interesting mix of works from a range of talented artists.
