WEEK ONE – 6th to 11th August

In the mornings we have the Little Shakespeare group with the Bard for little people and not so little people, providing their light- hearted take on Macbeth. Fun for all the family and a great introduction to Shakespeare for a younger audience.

Also at lunchtimes in the first week we have from Thursday to Saturday the ‘Divas of Oz’. Six feisty older women shine a light on family violence. The show will make you laugh and cry as you listen to true stories of women’s experiences. And their puppets Reg and Regina will try to get a word in.

In the afternoons, Wednesday to Saturday, Coraghy Lane Productions will present David Harrower’s superb one-woman play ‘Ciara’. Looking back as well as forward in the life of a respectable Glasgow art gallery owner.

In the evenings, the Edinburgh Grads theatre company will have ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ a classic Shakespeare comedy romp with all the expected twists and turns.

Followed by Claire Wood’s new piece ‘Skirt’, a sharp take on the political ambitions of a single mother in Scotland.

 

WEEK TWO – 13th to 18th August

Wednesday to Saturday there are four more performances of ‘Ciara’.

Each evening, Monday – Saturday, the Arkle Theatre Company’s two plays will be ‘Laugh Out Loud, (Cry Quietly) by Stacie Letts which enters the world of internet dating and where text and email messages can mean very different things.

After that we have Matthew Capidacosa’s amazing play ‘You Remind Me Of You’ which centres on the world of those with prosopagnosia.

 

WEEK THREE – 20th to 25th August

Monday to Saturday at lunchtime Euan Kirkpatrick, a local young writer from West Lothian, brings his piece ‘Yer Aul Da’ charting the turbulent relationship of a father and a son.

Every Evening, Monday to Saturday, the Edinburgh Makars group will stage the timeless Neil Simon classic ‘Plaza Suite’. The mistakes of an evening run rampant in this brilliant comedy set in the famous New York hotel.
