100-Word Fringe: “7 Day Drunk” at Assembly George Square

Art, creativity, booze, creativity, art. Bryony Kimmings’ show is about what makes artists tick, and whether alcohol is a creative lubricant. Kimmings got progressively drunker over seven days and – monitored by a not unimpressive team of scientists, psychologists and well-wishers – measured the effectiveness and quality of her art over time. Artistry isn’t my favourite topic, but Kimmings infuses it with a talent for story-telling and turns of tone. That said, the art she creates isn’t of the highest calibre, and a more entertaining play on the deification of alcohol is just that little bit out of reach. Skol!

7 Day Drunk has finished its run at the Fringe, but you can check out upcoming tour dates at www.bryonykimmings.com
