So what's Fonmanu Creative up to this fringe? … Continue reading Edinburgh Fringe 2017

Hence, the mash-up name cry-max. I never encountered a partner who cry-maxed. As a woman who … Continue reading Cry-maxing
It all began tonight So tonight is preview night. I'm excited. I've been doing all the nervous pooing. Like, all the nervous pooing. I'm calming myself down by making props for the show. Director Mitch wanted a few notes from Jenni to David, wee romantic ones to dot about on the set. Here's what I … Continue reading Tonight, tonight
