Full press release

Multi award-winning actor and stand-up comedian Phil Nichol returns to the Fringe to read a sit-down funny story that takes the audience somewhere beautiful and heart-warming. If you're feeling tired, jaded or fatigued, take a one-hour holiday to The Weary Land, in Phil's comedic tale of falling in love, growing up and falling apart.

The Weary Land is a bittersweet semi-autobiographical journey through the highs and lows of Phil's love life, centering on the breakdown of his marriage but more importantly the journey back to health and mutual understanding between him and his ex-wife.

Also, Phil has just landed the role of Mandy Dinkleman in The Machine, a fascinating new play written by Matt Chapman and directed by Josie Rourke, about the world's greatest chess player Garry Kasporov, is up against Deep Blue, a faceless super-computer built by IBM. http://www.mif.co.uk/event/the-machine
