The Very Grey Matter of Edward Blank

Finger in the Pie’s resident company Familia de la Noche present an exclusive preview of their new Edinburgh Fringe show.

Edward Blank is extraordinary.

An exceptional literary talent and ghost writer, Edward Blank has the ability to change Mills and Boon into James Joyce before breakfast. The demand for his work is so great that the letterbox clatters non-stop with tapes for transcription and he never leaves the solitary world of his tiny magnolia flat.

But Edward is far from alone. Breaking out from his fractured conscience are an anarchic family of imagined companions, each with a hook in Edward’s life that pulls him deeper into fantasy. His mind is broken and Edward can’t leave.

Edward seems happy in his ordinary-extraordinary life until, one day, a voice on an audio tape changes everything, challenging how far he will go to protect his fragile reality when visions of his forgotten past begin to creep in.
