Hailing from the Scottish seaside town of St Andrews is the award-winning a cappella group BELLS. This summer, we invite you to our show premiering at the Fringe: SOUNDSCAPE.

Inspired by a wide range of genres from jazz to pop, soul, and traditional music, BELLS is a contemporary choir performing softly woven arrangements, sampling instrumental motifs and heartfelt lyrics by James Blake, Alt J, Stormzy, Sufjan Stevens and many more.

 

Eventide

12th-24th, 12:50, Greenside @ Infirmary Street 

Eliza Drake used to believe in fairies. Like Eventide, fey of the dusk, and Jayhren, the lightning fairy – and all sorts of others she once played games with. She's grown up now, and she knows they were her sister's silly stories. Only the fairies haven't quite got the message. Seeing that Eliza is needing help, three fairies arrive to convince her to remember them and, if they're feeling kind, offer some well-intentioned but poorly thought-out advice on the perils of growing up.

 

Forbidden Fruit at The Edinburgh Fringe 2019

Join TBD Theatre for Forbidden Fruit: a riotous game of love where we put the power in your hands – at each performance the audience will decide which actor plays which role. It’s time for the rules to be rewritten. And rewritten. And rewritten. Age category: 12+

Our Saviour  

2nd-17th, 21:45, theSpace Triplex 

To some, Reverend Sheen is a walking miracle. A saving grace for the desperate and needy. He claims to be able to cure terminal illness, make the disabled walk and even erase crippling debt, just with the power of prayer… and a generous donation. To others, Peter Sheen is a manipulative con man, using the art of persuasion and charisma to charm his unwitting audiences out of their hard-earned cash. Either way, more lurks beneath Reverend Sheen’s million-dollar smile than meets the eye.
