I’m typing this leaving London on a hot June day – that’s a nice sentence to type! – as it seems summer is finally here at least for the south of the UK. Of course this means that Edinburgh will be slowly swelling towards bursting point as the tourists head north, culminating in the madness that is August and the Fringe.
We have two delights for you this year. The first, The Fair Intellectual Club, written by Lucy Porter gives an insight into a secret club set up in the 18th century by girls who wished to be more than just pretty things to be married off at the earliest opportunity by their fathers. They wanted to learn, debate and generally be treated as the equals (at least) of their male peers. Directed by Yours Truly, I’ve got a great cast and a superb script licensed direct from Lucy Porter herself. Click Fair Intellectual Flyer for the PDF version to send to your friends.
Our second show is Outside Mullingar, by John Patrick Shanley, directed by Carole Hardie. We are back in Ireland, but the tale is slightly darker and in a more rural than our production of Da in March. Click Mullingar flyer for the PDF version to download.
We think we have a couple of superb shows for you this year, and we hope you will too. Of course, you have to come and see them first! We are at the usual venue, The Royal Scots Club on Abercromby Place, so ideal for a short stroll to or from the fleshpots of George Street. Of course, you can also join us in the bar – see you after the show!
