It’s just a matter of weeks until Edinburgh witnesses the largest celebration of theatre in the world. As artists, creatives and theatre lovers prepare to make their way to the theatrical hub, it can become very easy to forget that bringing a performance from page to stage can be a lengthy process. Ideastap Underbelly Award winner Izzy Tennyson is set to perform her latest work, Brute at the Udderbelly Cowgate throughout the festival. Ahead of her Edinburgh run, Izzy speaks to Theatrefullstop about being an award winner, the lack of female roles within theatre and being mentored by the multi talented Penny Woolcock. ‘Brute’ is the winner of the Ideastap Underbelly Award.
