20 July – 1 August, 7.00pm & 9.00pm
Can’t make it to Edinburgh? Then head down to Theatre503 where we will be hosting a fortnight of Edinburgh-themed fun. We’re looking forward to a wide range of shows from high comedy to dark tragedy, and many stop in between. We have exciting previews from the likes of Jon Brittain with Star Trek comedy What Would Spock Do? and a moving tale of two boys from a children’s home in Billy Through The Window. Other ones to watch are Hannah Turk’s ‘expat comedy’ Flight Lessons and the surreal Back to Blackbrick from Patch of Blue Theatre.
We’re sure to have something for everyone!

“This is a romance between a man and a city.”
I’m a doer, I’m a roll up your sleeves and make a change person. People are usually reluctant to change, that’s why you leave them behind. Money and drugs are my tools, my bucket and spade. I’m digging myself a trench in London and bunkering down. An earwig latched onto London’s armpit.
Velvet Trumpet have spent the last three years staking their claim as London’s finest comedy theatre company, presenting work that is dark, bittersweet and above all funny. Teaming up with producer Emily Hubert (I And The Village - Theatre503, Silk Road - Assembly Festival) and directorJonny Kelly (Papatango Theatre Company) they are proud to present this acerbic debut play by man-in-crisis Nick Smith.
