- August 2023It’s 1930 - silent movies are out and talkies are in! The once-successful silent film director turned theatre impresario, Mr Scruples, has been given the gruelling task of bringing opera to the masses through the silver screen! But, an already difficult task is made frustratingly impossible by two warring diva sopranos who both insist on top billing… Will they find a solution to make everyone happy? Will Mr Angel ever recover? Will Mr Scruples finally get to retire to the country? And will Mr Bluff ever be allowed to sing professionally again?... After winning the prestigious Bobby Award last year, we are excited to be bringing Mozart's comic opera, The Impresario, into the 1930s in this ambitious production for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival!
- August 2023An unscrupulous landlord lets the same flat to two different men: Cox who is out at work all day, and Box who is out at work all night. When Cox is unexpectedly given the day off and the two men discover each other, the landlord’s scheme falls apart. But when the lodgers realise that they have something in common, will they forget their quarrel? After winning the prestigious Bobby Award last year, we are excited to be presenting another of Sullivan's musical comedies, Cox & Box, in this ambitious production for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival!
- August 2022The year is 1968 and the British legal system is as corrupt as ever. The 'breach of promise of marriage' law is still technically in force and Juries remain predominantly male. The arrogant Edwin has been summoned to Court by his ex-fiancée, Angelina, under said law, and against each other they fight to win The Trial! Complete with a dodgy Judge, a questionable jury, and some dubious decisions, chaos inevitably ensues... Trial by Jury is a one-act operatic satire of the British legal system, which will be brought into the '60s in our exciting rendition of this production! We’re excited to be bringing this production to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in the lofty and spacious Triplex Big venue!
