Our interview with Pippa Winslow from LynchPin

April 4, 2017

We caught up with Pippa Winslow, leading lady from You Give Me Fever, the Phaedra Cabaret about what why she loves performing in Guildford so much.

Nick Wyschna: What is it about performing in Guildford that you love so much?

Pippa Winslow: I love performing in Guildford because I’ve lived in and around here for so many years now it feels like my hometown – although you wouldn’t think from hearing my accent – still remarkably American sounding even after all this time. My kids grew up here, went to school here, and I have lots of friends here. I love Guildford audiences – always ready for some great entertainment.

Nick: What other shows have you done in Guildford in the past?

Pippa: I’ve done lots of shows in Guildford over the years, some of my favourites are Follies, The Secret Garden and A Little Night Music all at the Yvonne Arnaud and then my one woman cabaret Just A Housewife at the Yvonne Arnaud Mill Studio before touring a couple of years back.

Nick: Wow, so you have performed in Guildford a lot! What was your favourite and why?

Pippa: Just A Housewife has got to be my favourite. I love shows in a cabaret setting, it’s almost as if the audience is another character in the piece. Each night is different based on the vibe in the theatre at that moment.

Nick: You Give Me Fever is set in cabaret style as well so we are expecting this to be your new favourite! What is next for you after this production?

Pippa: My next stage appearance will be at the Royal Festival Hall in the new Christopher Green piece, Prurience. I also have a couple of films making the festival rounds at the moment and two new films shooting next year – one of them about a jazz singer, I can use all of my You Give Me Fever for character research.

Nick: Thank you so much for chatting to us and for bring this production, with LynchPin, to Guildford Fringe. We cannot wait to host you.

Pippa: After being away for a year with the UK Tour of The Sound of Music it’s nice to be able to perform in my hometown again so I am equally looking forward to performing with LynchPin and Guildford Fringe.
