Fringe: Kiri Pritchard-McLean's guide to Welsh acts

Working within an industry that fetishises London in a way that would make Dick Whittington cringe, it can also be a way for acts from across the country to be seen.

Kiri Pritchard-McLean, The National (Wales), 20th August 2022

More details

Welsh comedy writer and stand-up, Esyllt Sears, is taking her debut show to Edinburgh Fringe this summer. Esyllt Sears: Absolutely Not runs from 4 - 28 August at Just the Tonic at The Tron (venue 51), directed by stand-up, producer and director Stuart Laws (who produced James Acaster's Repertoire and Cold Lasagne Hate Myself 1999).

Esyllt was compelled to create this show following a realisation that you can spend too much time in the bath and end up media managing your own death, actually. Also, the prospect of being able to escape her two young kids for the summer holidays was too good an opportunity to miss.

Of her show, Esyllt says: "I have always expected nothing and received even less. I pursued a career in PR, embraced some pretty sketchy maternal instincts and allowed self-care and it has only led to redundancy, tearing and having to organise the media relations around my eventual death.

"An audience member from one of my preview shows said that the experience of watching the show made her feel both turned on and frightened. I couldn't have put it better myself. Come."
