Happy Birthday Without You
Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2015 at Paines Plough's ROUNDABOUT @ Summerhall
A one-woman comedy that explores a growing cultural obsession with autobiography through the fictional performance artist, Violet Fox.
Violet Fox is an award winning live and visual spoken word vegan solo artist and occasional collaborator. Today is a celebration of every birthday. And you're invited. Bring beer and bunting and come on a journey through Violet's childhood of pop tarts, Patti Smith and second hand smoke. In Happy Birthday Without You Violet tells the story of her complicated relationship with her mother through a series of birthday anecdotes, musical interludes and cake. Warning: people usually cry.
