Plain Heroines presents...

Three Days' Time - Edinburgh Fringe Festival
By Kate Reid

16:00, Wed 17th – Mon 29th August 2016 at C Nova, India Buildings, Edinburgh
Summer Vacation

Following the success of the Cambridge premiers last term, we are excited to announce that Three Days' Time will be going to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival this summer!

C Nova, 16th-28th August, (Time TBC)

“Three Days’ Time is clever and quirky, with an air of verisimilitude to which any student who has gone home after a term or two away at school can relate. The script provides serious meditation with ample comic relief, never failing to delight and always moving at a brisk pace… whip-smart, funny, and unmissable. For anyone who has ever been exasperated by parental quirks during a visit home, Three Days’ Time is for you…”
4.5 STARS – The Tab

“some of the strongest student writing I’ve had the pleasure of seeing. Three Days’ Time balances its imperfections with genuinely humorous and touching dialogue.”
8/10 – TCS


Dee has not seen Mary for years. Dee has little to nothing in common with Mary. Dee is bailing Mary out of jail. Dee is Mary's daughter.

No matter how hard we try, and how far we go, our families always manage to pull us back in. Dee realises this whilst trying to unravel the mystery of her puritanical mother's jail time at the same time as confronting her beloved father’s recent death.

Over the course of three days – being forced to share the same house again after years of distance – Dee and Mary rediscover what they have always loved, and hated, about one another.


More info coming soon but feel free to contact Gabbie (gb468) with any questions.

Rehearsals will take place in the first two weeks in August, in Edinburgh.
