Doctor Who play at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival

Featured here is the new poster for a Doctor Who-based play heading to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival next month (click on it for a bigger version).

Titled Who Are You Supposed To Be?, it's a classic tale of a boy in a TARDIS t-shirt standing in front of a girl dressed as the Fifth Doctor, asking her to love him... and a girl demanding to know why she can’t be the Doctor or Han Solo or Captain Reynolds. They’d be star-crossed lovers (Wars and Trek, obviously) but they have so much in common - surely they can find the time and space to fall in love? This is a story about wanting to feel safe, to be appreciated and how far we’ll go to find people like us.

Who Are You Supposed To Be? stars Blogtor Who himself, Cameron K McEwan, in a play that examines gender roles in both science-fiction and fandom and even asks: Why can't The Doctor be a woman...? The show isn’t just about a woman playing the Doctor, though. It is, at its core, a love story where the characters initially bond over pop culture references. As well as love, the show also tackles the issue of anxiety – and how we cope outside our comfort zones. Check out the video pitch from the writer, director and stars below, if you'd like to help this project then you can donate HERE.
