Artwork (seen left) has been revealed today for Ed Brody's Penthouse, which premieres this August at Edinburgh Fringe. The artwork is created by industry legend Colin Hutton. In response to the reveal, Brody mentions, "I wrote Penthouse back in 2011 and couldn't be more excited for it to premiere at the Edinburgh Fringe festival. And to have established industry talent Colin Hutton on board creating the artwork was an extraordinary coup for us."

Ewan is one of the country's most intelligent young bankers but he's just lost close to £1.4 billion of investors' money in illegal trades. His plan? Hire the penthouse of a hotel and indulge in a blowout before ending it all.

But everything is turned upside down when he meets an escort called Eloise and sex, drugs and depression begin to blur Ewan's perception of reality.

Penthouse offers an insight into the world of bankers and the pressures they face that can lead them to take their own lives.

Inspired by a true story, Ed Brody wrote and directed his debut play PENTHOUSE as part of his drama school dissertation. But as his interest in the profound and timely themes of the play grew, so did his passion to put Penthouse onto a bigger stage.

PENTHOUSE stars a wealth of talent including Cat Lamb Hughes - critically acclaimed for her recent lead in Jack Thorne's 'Bunny' at The White Bear Theatre; Dario Coates - Off West End Award nominated for his role in 'Sid' at The Arts Theatre in London's West End; recently graduatEd Ryan Hutton and the play's writer Ed Brody seen in 'Father Brown' (BBC) 'The White Queen' (BBC) and 'The Boy in The Striped Pyjamas' (Chichester/Tour dir. Joe Murphy).

PENTHOUSE will premiere at The Space on Niddry Street, on the 4th August, and will run until the 26th August 2017 (excluding 13th August).
