 YES!
Live and Safe
In-person show at The Gladstone
on our brand-new summer patio!

Come have a drink on the patio and enjoy a socially-distanced live-in-person show.
Tickets are pay-what-you-can with a 20 person capacity, so get your tickets quickly!
We cannot offer our hearing assistance device–performers will be using microphones.

While the show does include singing (a no-no during a pandemic), the singing is pre-recorded and there will be live instruments.

“It’s midsummer. It’s raining. And there’s these two people having sex. They’ve only just met.” Thus begins a whirlwind weekend of revelry, romance, and self-discovery set along the magical backdrop of Edinburgh. Upscale lawyer, Helena, and petty conman, Bob, are worlds apart, but their respective midlife crises create a deep and surprising connection. Playwright David Greig and composer Gordon McIntyre pair up to deliver that rarest of beasts, a romantic comedy with a good head on its shoulders as well as a huge heart at its centre. Greig’s story and McIntyre’s songs offer the thrilling possibility that we can take our lives in hand and reinvent ourselves. Or, as the machine in the Edinburgh Castle car park puts it: “CHANGE IS POSSIBLE”.

 

Weather Policy

Performances will carry on in light rain, so check the forecast and bring an umbrella.
If rain is very heavy or there are thunderstorms, the event will be rescheduled, or you can exchange your ticket for a different date.
We cannot guarantee sun protection — umbrellas also make good parasols!
