Rula Lenska with Mark Fisher - Pleasance Bytes



Rula Lenska has a career spanning thirty years, and comes to the Pleasance with a glint in her eye as she stars in EuroBeat - a "gentle spoof" of Eurovision as she puts it.   This in depth interview discovers how her family escaped tragedy in Europe during the war, how she was held captive in a mediterranean socialite playground, and why she's spent so much of her own time in conservation and animal rights awareness.   Mark Fisher is a freelance journalist and critic living in Scotland and specialising in theatre and the arts. Publications he writes for include The Guardian, Scotland on Sunday, The Sunday Times, The Herald and The Scotsman.
