The Edinburgh Reporter met Grant Stott and Andy Gray the two stars of stage and screen who have combined their talents to delight audiences young and old at the King’s Theatre pantomime over the years, but who are now doing something a bit more serious in their Fringe show Kiss Me, Honey Honey!
We took a trip on a tram to let them spruce up their lines ahead of the performances which start on 17 August 2014. Neither of them had been on a tram before, despite Mr Stott being poster boy for Lothian Buses!
It was a lot of fun and despite the fact that the show is a study of middle aged men at a certain point in their lives, it is certain that there will be some comedy moments . It is hard to be around these two without laughing a lot of the time.
Due to overwhelming demand and following a total sell-out season at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2013, the Fringe First Award winning hit stage show returns with a ‘last chance to see’ limited run of seven performances from 17 -20 & 23 – 24 August.
Two men of a certain age form an unlikely friendship through a shared love of Shirley Bassey. Together they begin a hilarious search for the women of their dreams, after their lives seem to have fallen apart. Acclaimed Scottish actors Andy Gray and Grant Stott star as Ross and Graham … and all the women in their lives.
The show is alarmingly fast paced, with a darkness underneath the hilarious, sometimes shambolic look at life, relationships and what it means to reach a more ‘mature’ age and stage and find yourself not where you thought you’d be.
Commissioned for the Edinburgh Festival Fringe by Karen Koren, Artistic Director of the Gilded Balloon, in 2013 this is truly a play for Edinburgh. Starring two local favourites of Panto Dame fame – Andy Gray and Grant Stott; more than proving they have a serious side too!
