On the 18th and 19th of April, Broadsword Theatre shall be staging an evening of short plays in The Wee Red Bar.
For the first half, we reached out to other creatives based in Edinburgh and invited them to write their own original pieces, inspired by the word "trapped". We are delighted to bring you these short works by Sam Eastop, Calum Rosie, Martina Vondrova and Louise Piatkowski, in the form of a scratch night.
The second half shall be the headline act: Despondence, a short play written by Alexander Cook and featuring Jade McQuillan, Sam Thorne, Anthony Smyth and Chris Pearson. Despondence is an original work set against the backdrop of a small highland village during the turn of the 19th century. Iona, who runs the local inn, is visited by Charlie, a young priest who has received a mysterious letter from some one inside the village; mentioning only vague details of a new and possibly threatening presence in the village.
Tickets are £5 on the door - cash only.
The venue is a licensed bar and will be serving alcohol.
The material being debuted during this show is not suitable for children, parental discretion is advised.
