Gormenghast at the Edinburgh Festival

A very different interpretation from the David Glass Ensemble's adaptation of Gormenghast will be staged at the Edinburgh Festival during August by an all-female cast who will play the various roles. The staging, costumes even the atmosphere is likely to have quite a novel flavour given the fact that all the principal characters will be played by young women. We wish every success to this brave adventure which hopefully will be both well received and well reviewed. Visit their website for more information.

The production will run from 13th to 18th August at Understairs @Apostolic, 2 Davie Street, Edinburgh EH8 9EB at 18.15 hours. Visit their website for more information and photos.

Tickets can be bought from www.edfringe.com or www.understairs-arts.org.uk
