Doing some Damselling on Thursday to support miss Bryony Byrne who is fundraising to make a film. This is basically my audition. I'll be joined by special guest Samantha Sutherland on Sax, clarinet and Jazz flute - yes! Not to mention the talented Richard Baker on keys. I'm trying out some new songs so come along Thursday at 19:00 to The Old Nun's Head in Nun's Head.
Bye Bye Fringe
Fri September 6th 2013
It's all over for another year and what a treat you were Edinburgh Fringe. Thanks to everybody who came to watch Damsel this year, you were all particularly lovely. I'm missing it so much. Have a look at the Blog section or follow me on @DamselSophie for new writing and projects and get in touch if you need some melodrama in your life xxx
So Far, So Good at Edinburgh Fringe
Mon August 5th 2013
All's good at Edfringe...we got our first Five Star Review ★★★★★ "Damsel in Shining Armour is the kind of joyous, impeccably structured and downright hilarious show that exemplifies just how good cabaret can be." http://www.femalearts.com/node/609. I've had two Hollyoaks hunks in the audience. And I've mounted a fan (electric). Come one and all. Underbelly, 10.15pm every night this August (not 12th). And I'd love it if you gave us a tweet @damselsophie #edfringe.
Edinburgh here I come
Tue July 30th 2013
On my way to Edinburgh Fringe to perform all month at Underbelly. Doing Damsel in Shining Armour, 10.15pm, every night except the 12th. Hope to see you there lovelies.

OMG having an absolute whale of a time at my little run at Brighton Fringe. I've never heard people out sing me in the finale song quite as much. On for a couple more nights, 7pm at The Quadrant.
When Damsel meets Marilyn
Sat May 11th 2013
Last few weeks have been mad. Damsel in Shining Armour did a mini tour to Cheltenham Everyman, The Lowry, Manchester and ending at a golf club in the Scottish countryside. I then made an impromptu appearance on the West End (literally) at Cafe de Paris for the Black Cat cabaret night. Puuurfect (sorry).
On more Hollywood note I've been buried in black box spaces with award winning all-female theatre company ShadyJane putting the finishing touches to our glamorous show 'Marilyn Gets Up'. I've been building sets, painting, cutting up petals and have learnt how to work mini projectors to perfection. We made our debut last Wednesday on the main stage at Winchester Theatre Royal and it was smashing. We're still mid-way through our preview tour and have relocated to a warehouse in Peckham...from one extreme….
To sum up, the vocal chords have been getting well used, I've shocked a lot of old people, glitter and sawdust is stuck in every orifice and I've grown quite accustomed to my blond wig. Apparently they do have more fun…

'Mr Darcy' is here...in collaboration with spoken word artist Charlie Dupré, Pinch TV and of course...my one and only...love of my life.......Ted.
Doing the Back to Back
Wed April 3rd 2013
So I'm finally going to put the two shows together on Saturday 6th April at St James Theatre, for an epic back to back performance of 'The Damsel in Shining Armour' (Best Cabaret Adelaide Fringe 2011) and 'Hot' (Nominee Best Cabaret 2012). It's going to be exhilirating albeit sweaty. Tickets sales are going great so I'm really chuffed. Do come along if you can make it, kick off is 7.15pm and there is a bar ridiculously near the stage. http://www.stjamestheatre.co.uk/events/the-damsel-in-shining-armour/
