Rather than feature in the 341 stand-up comedy shows available to festival-goers, Pandini has chosen to take a lead role in the new play Non-Scene by Brian Fillis, writer of last yearÂs highly-acclaimed Fear of Fanny ('The Fillis brothers are two lugubrious scousers who have created a deft piece of theatre that avoids easy laughsÂ Â Sunday Times)
Non-Scene centres on Lionel, a repressed, passive homosexual psychopath who brings young gay men back to his flat. Once heÂs murdered them, itÂs time for some decent conversation, as their lifeless bodies become his characters. The play acting is, of course, filtered through LionelÂs rather warped view of the world, making for some sparkling dialogue
"IÂm really excited about being part of this show" says Pandini. "ItÂs something a bit different, yet feels right for me as a performer. While IÂm in Edinburgh, IÂll also be performing my stand-up routine at various comedy venues, but I hope that my part in Non-Scene will be the start of many straight roles. Mind you, IÂd also quite like a radio show, too, if anyoneÂs offering."
Non-Scene is at the Garage (venue 81) from 3rd Â 25th August (not 13th or 18th) at 17:10.
