All\'s Well That Ends As You Like It: A Lamentable Comedie and Hysterickal Tragedie, by William Shakefpeare

All's Well That Ends As You Like It: A Lamentable Comedie and Hysterickal Tragedie, by William Shakefpeare

There could be no greater honour than premiering a lost work of Shakespeare at the Edinburgh Fringe. Great honours don't always go to the deserving, which explains why this motley crew are murdering the Bard's verse (and each other) in a rollicking disaster comedy straight out of 1614. It'll be alright on the night if the director can rediscover his marbles, the star remembers his pills, the cast can distinguish between prop and real swords, and the techie can stay firmly offstage!

Julius Caesar

Julius Caesar

Power is put in the wrong hands, reputations are tarnished and the blood of a general is spilt. Shakespeare's Julius Caesar is seen through the lens of the Vietnam War where authority constantly finds itself misplaced. The stakes are high for the conspirators: we invite you to join their bloody journey in this new take on the famous play. Will power ever be used for the good? Continue Reading

A Clockwork Orange

A Clockwork Orange

‘What’s it going to be then, eh?’ Little Alex is charming, clever and sophisticated. She’s also a callous thug with a thing for amphetamine-laced milk and lashings of the old ultra-violence. When a robbery turns sour Alex is incarcerated for murder. But just how should the state deal with criminals like Alex? A shocking new treatment called the Ludovico Technique promises results, fast. But is it right to take away a person’s capacity to choose between good and evil? An all-female cast Continue Reading

The Comedy of Errors

The Comedy of Errors

An earthquake is erupting, but not in Orange Street. Shakespeare meets Ska, Two-Tone and Rudeboy in a high-energy comedy of... um... errors! Two pairs of twins, separated at birth now cause chaos in Ephesus as merchants and magistrates, and even wives can't tell which is which! Somehow Madness, Bad Manners, The Pretenders and even Bananarama all add to the fun. 'Well-drilled young actors... focused and fun' (EdinburghSpotlight.com). Continue Reading

Songs from: A Shropshire Lad

Songs from: A Shropshire Lad

Sam Hird (baritone) and Sam Johnson (piano) perform songs by British composer George Butterworth, whose death on the Somme 100 years ago robbed us of one of our most promising musical talents. Butterworth’s settings brilliantly handle the themes of longing, the fleetingness of life and the folly of war that made AE Housman’s Shropshire Lad poems so popular with young people at the time. It’s a terrible irony that Butterworth himself suffered the fate of the young soldier in the poem that Continue Reading
