60 Seconds with…Sebastian Hayes!

We are very excited to be welcoming local science fiction writer Sebastian Hayes back to the Fringe this year for some more mind blowing entertainment. For now, read on for a 60 second taster…

Q: How did you first discover your talent?

Local Talent Competition at age 12, prize for reciting a poem (“The Listeners” by Walter de la Mare)

Q: Which three words best describe your act?

There are two acts. Three words to best describe Transmissions from the Future :  Uncanny, thought-provoking and original. For playreading Besieged:  Tense, penetrating and plausible.

Q: How many shows have you performed to date and which was your favourite?

Many. Favourite was perhaps a public storytelling at The Earth-House of my folk tale The Island of Gulls at a weekend celebrating Viking culture.

Q: Which two fictional characters from film, literature or theatre would you replace your parents with?

Humphrey Bogarte and Ingrid Bergman.

Q: What was the best piece of advice you have been given by a fellow performer?

Don’t overdo it.

Q: Will you be performing at Shaftesbury Fringe 2017? What’s the plan?

Yes. I am repeating last year’s Transmissions from the Future  based on my unfinished SF novel The Web of Aoullnnia ― but with a different excerpt read and presumably different questions from the audience addressed to Yilkin I. Isellyion via a space-time link on Saturday 1st July at 4 pm. The second will be a play reading of my One Act psychological thriller Besieged at Turnbull’s again on Sunday 2nd July at 11am. I, along with other local actors and actresses, will be performing.

You can follow The Web Of Aoullnnia here. Thanks Sebastian!
