EDINBURGH PREVIEWS: Rachel Fairburn & Robert White
Rachel Fairburn: Her Majesty
Remember those kids at school that always dressed as if they had a tea dance to attend? The ones who knew all the words to George Formby songs and had Spam on their sandwiches? Well, Rachel was one of those kids. Bizarrely, she had loads of friends but she preferred hanging out and kickin’ it with her two best pals; her Granny and Granddad.
