New in 2018

Let’s Inherit The Earth, Morna Pearson’s new play, a dark comedy about climate change, opens at summerhall at the Edinburgh Fringe 2018 after work-in-progress performances in Sweden in June in a co-production between Dogstar and Profilteatern from Umea, prior to a Scottish and Swedish tour.

South Bend, by Martin McCormick, is Grid Iron’s Fringe 2018 show, a satire on America directed by Ben Harrison. Following an outstanding response for the work-in-progress showing at the Hidden Door Festival 2017, this will be the full production featuring Martin McCormick and with live foley accompaniment by David Pollock. South Bend will play the whole Festival Fringe prior to a Scottish tour.

The Buke of the Howlet, the second book to be printed in Scotland, will be presented as an outdoor promenade at Brodie Castle in September 2018 for the Findhorn Bay Arts Festival with direction by Ben Harrison, adaptation by Morna Young, design by Becky Minto, choreography by Ruby Worth. Produced for Findhorn Bay Arts by Kressana Aigner
