Interview - Sonja Doubleday

Working out an Edinburgh festival schedule needs a balance of seeing the familiar with the new. DARKCHAT took a chance with " Cheekykita: An Octopus, The Universe 'n' Stuff". We are glad we did as this has proved to be one of the hits of the unexpected hits of the festival. Cheekykita ( Sonja Doubleday) took time out of her ridiculously busy schedule to give us this interview.
