SEX & DRUGS & PR
Pieter Egriega was the 2016 winner of the Buxton Fringe award for the small group and ensembles. He was nominated last year for his unique piece entitled Mr Different, in which he emerges from a large laundry bag and conducts conversations with invisible passers by.
This year, he will be Frank Sinistra, a saloon singer and former News of the World Journalist, who conducts a PR business whilst serenading patrons in a show called Sex & Drugs & P.R. at the Hydro Cafe Bar. July 7th, 20th and 21st.
You'll hear songs, accompanied by the virtuouso pianist Charles Ormrod and get the inside track on today's celebrity culture including some extremely salacious gossip.
Of course, you may have to determine what is true and what is not.
Also, Frank's girlfriend is not returning his calls, but it's okay.... she's out with her hairdresser.
The admission fee also includes a free CD of the show's songs.
Aside from the previous Buxton Fringe award, Pieter proudly won the Stroke Association's National Creative Arts Award in 2014, although Frank doesn't think much of it.
But then Frank is an opinionated bore, so we can only hope that his girlfriend teaches him a lesson.
