Unexpected Turbulence @ Edinburgh Festival Fringe

Back in June, drag performer/Lecoq clown Alexander Burnett reached out to me gauging interest in directing a solo show following the misadventures of a French flight attendant for the 2019 Edinburgh Festival Fringe. I was immediately hooked, and upon chatting with Alexander, knew this collaboration was going to be a great fit.

Unexpected Turbulence by Steven Elliott, performed in drag by Alexander Burnett of the École Jacques Lecoq, and directed by me, runs August 3rd through 9th at 8:25pm (20:25) nightly. The hour-long piece is at Paradise in Augustines (Venue 152) in the Snug Theatre, 41 George IV Bridge, Edinburgh, EH1 1EL. Purchase tickets here.

Bonjour et bienvenue à bord, bitches! Crystelle Desjardins is a stewardess on a mission to claim the title of “Best Flight Attendant in the Fleet” for the 16th year in a row. The only things stopping her? An old flame, a gorgeous Canadian idiot, and a lemon plant. The captain has turned the fasten seatbelt sign on for the duration of this 60-minute piece of new writing (with more emotional baggage than an overhead bin).
