KillMachine2053wRick Yale  talks about being at Edinburgh Fringe Festival playing The Betray in To Kill a Machine a new play about Alan Turing written by Catrin Fflur Huws.

What has the experience been like being in Edinburgh for the first time?

Well it goes without saying that this is one of the most beautiful cities I have ever been in. There is so much to do and see that for the first few days it felt a bit overwhelming. But as I’ve settled in, you really appreciate the atmosphere of the festival. The streets are filled with support and love for the arts and as an actor you feel like a kid in a candy shop with so many shows on your doorstep.

What is is like to be in a show that is receiving such incredible responses from audience?
It feels so warming that the audience has really tuned in and responded so beautifully to Alan’s story. It makes what we do so worth it when people leave the space having either learned something about Turing or even about themselves. With each positive review it gives us more of an incentive to keep a high standard of storytelling .
What has been your favourite experience of the festival so far?
Waking up to Fran leaning over me, giggling like a schoolgirl, newspaper in hand, reading a lovely review.
