Kelly Convey: Telephone Voice (Off The Kerb Productions)

By | Published on Tuesday 13 August 2019

A self-confessed “chav” in her youth, Kelly Convey is from a working class background and shows that with good grades – and adopting a posh accent – it can be possible to achieve social mobility. She’s had an intriguing career history, with the stars aligning and bringing her here to Edinburgh for her debut hour. Convey clearly has plans to come back again too, as this year is all about introducing us to who she is, and where she came from. There’s an array of anecdotes and, although there are a few clichés in there, ‘Telephone Voice’ is a good debut, focusing on how you can work so hard to hide your roots, but in reality the best thing to do is embrace them. 

Pleasance Courtyard, until 25 Aug.
