MA Musical Theatre alumna Lydia Davidson and Musical Directing graduate Shonagh Murray are bringing Confessions of a Child Star to the Edinburgh Fringe.

One woman’s embarrassing journey from child star dreams to inadequate adulthood. Lydia’s ‘How (not) To’ guide to life, love and success. How (not) to achieve your dreams, find love and do it with your dignity intact! Using well-known songs from pop, rock and folk genres she weaves together a familiar narrative that anyone who’s ever been a 20-something will relate to. From embarrassing childhood memories to cringeworthy adult attempts at fame and fortune. A unique, uplifting comedy cabaret that will have anyone who has ever been unsure in their life saying ‘oh I’ve been there!’

Using well-known songs from pop, rock and folk genres she weaves together a familiar narrative that every millennial, 20 – something will relate to. From embarrassing childhood memories to cringe-worthy adult attempts at fame and fortune.

Fearless Players is a female-led theatre company with a commitment to promoting the work of brilliant female creatives. Lydia is joined on stage by brilliant young Musical Director Shonagh Murray. Shonagh’s ability to breathe new life in the music while staying faithful to the well -known original songs is a triumph.
