Continuing the Fringe PopLives Q&A series, #80 is with Caitríona Ní Mhurchú.

What are you reading?
The Edinburgh Fringe Festival Brochure with my laptop open with the Tiger Dublin Fringe programme brochure

Last film you saw and your verdict?
How to Train a Dragon 2. Surprisingly enjoyable.

Last gig/concert you went to and your verdict?
Does ThisIsPopBaby’s WERK count as a gig? If it does, it was that and it was great.

Last stage production you saw and your verdict? 
Small War @ The Edinburgh Fringe. Beautiful. Haunting. Funny.

Last gallery / museum / exhibition you visited and your verdict?
The Scottish National Museum. Pretty damn cool. Particularly when travelling with a four-year-old. When it’s raining.

Do you have a favourite podcast or radio programme?
The History Show on RTE Radio 1 with Myles Dungan

When you fall into a YouTube hole what’s the general subject matter of the videos you’re watching?
Lego.

What song should we listen to right now?
‘Little Icarus’ by the Lofires

Which boxset/TV series do you have on the go at the moment?
A little behind the posse… I’m nearly at the end of Series 3 of Breaking Bad.

Which app do you use the most?
Very boringly DublinBus and Hailo.

What is your favourite club night of all time?
That question makes me feel very ancient. It was in Brixton. It started on a Friday night…

What was the last country you visited and what were you doing there?
Germany and I was working, touring Lippy with DeadCentre.

If you could transport one international cultural outlet to your home town, what would it be and why?
The Schaubuhne so that I could maybe get a job there. I am slightly in love with Thomas Ostermeier (although he doesn’t know it) and am quite excited that his Hamlet is coming to Dublin this Autumn.

And finally, if you check out one show in the Fringe (apart from your own) make it…
That is a horrible horrible question. There are so many great shows in this year’s programme… but maybe How to Keep an Alien by Sonya Kelly…?

Caitríona Ní Mhurchú’s new play Eating Seals and Seagulls’ Eggs presented by Little Wolf Productions runs at Project Arts Centre (Cube) from Sep 14 – 20 at Tiger Dublin Fringe.
