Edinburgh Preview: Nick Card on The Interview / by Declan Maloney Drummond

What's your show about?

It's a play about a corrupt businessman, Ian Marchbanks, who applies for what he believes will be his dream job.  He lies and cheats his way into the interview only to find that the position, the company and in particularly the interviewer are not as they appear.  Ian is then subjected to a hellish emotional rollercoaster ride during which his past finally catches up with him.  

Have you been to Edinburgh before?

Yes, I took my play "A Grave Reunion" there in 2012.


What's the process of bringing a show to Edinburgh like?

Very challenging but then I knew it would be as there are a lot of things that need to be sorted in order to make an Edinburgh Fringe production happen.  Fortunately I have a great team around me who are really making this play come together.

What do you plan to do with any free time you have during the Fringe?

See other shows.  One of the great things about being with theSpaceUK is that you get a pass to see other theSpaceUK shows for free - I will take full advantage of that.
