I TALK TO Athena Kugblenu

Athena Kugblenu has been up at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival for a few years but this year marks her debut hour, KMT.

Athena's debut appears to have arrived at the perfect time as she promises to find a new way to talk about politics, class, race and identity at a time both ends of the political spectrum couldn't be any further apart.

So this is your debut hour the Fringe. Why this year?

Yes, it's my debut hour. I've gone up to have a peek for the last couple of years. As for why now? Because it's kind of time and my stuff is kind of topical so it has to come out now. I think I have interesting things to say and if I wait another year, it won't be funny.
