Bad Blood is an expertly crafted one man show that manages to explore heavy subject matter while being clever, intimate and engaging. Ege Atila's performance is confident and truly fills the room through how how he uses gestures and tone, which immediately grabbed my attention, and allowed his detailed storytelling to flourish. The musical talent on display is also of high quality, which gave the show an extra level of intrigue through the ability to self-express in different mediums. Definitely would recommend.

I went to see this as the description was very mirroring of my own experiences with the recent passing of my own dad.

I was extremely impressed with this young, brave, and talented first timer at the Fringe. Storytelling interspliced with self-composed piano & vocals. I was shocked at the parallels with my experience, and very moved at the creator's rendering of his own in this solo musical just a year after the death.

It was brutally honest, dealing with tragic human stories, yet brimming with levity throughout.

I chatted to him afterward, and bought him a beer. A very sincere, sweet guy, with much integrity. He & his dad were Turkish, I and my dad were Cypriot...despite the ancestral feuding - we came together in shared humanity

This show shall not disappoint!

I loved this show! It was funny, sensitive, multi layered, the music was captivating and the story beautifully and skilfully told. It was a tender loving honest telling that had me totally involved all the way through. A really lovely young man with so much talent and integrity.

I was so impressed with this young man of many talents! He told a beautiful but painful story, interwoven with great original music he wrote and played. He was also extremely courageous - revealing a highly personal experience that he still wrestles with.

I attended the show with my teenaged daughter, and the story (well, the conflicts within the story) had us debating for a long time afterwards. Lots of food for thought!

We hope to see much more of this promising young talent. And for a first time at the Fringe, he was absolutely heroic!

A totally captivating show anchored by a magnetic performer with deftly employed storytelling, music, humour and grief. A worthy addition to any fringe schedule.

This very talented young performer had me entranced from the start . With an ambitious mixture of his own original songs , beautifully accompanying himself on keyboards and crisp dialogue he tells the tale of his real life dilemma. I was moved . He deserves bigger audiences .
