STANDING TOO CLOSE ON OUR OWN IN THE DARK

Standing Too Close on Our Own in the Dark is a gig-theatre event which is as vibrant and hopeful as it is melancholic - a romantic tragedy which sees its performer labour over a journal of original poetry and comedic monologue with encouragement from a live band. Part-gig, part-spoken word ramble, part-stand up set, Standing Too Close effervesces with the endearing awkwardness of early-20s social discomfort, delivering an abundance of pop-philosophy with live music, understated wit and a charming poet who waxes lyrical about the cosmos, bike locks and ex-girlfriends' dads.

VIOLET

by Bebe Sanders

"There's no bullshit with Violet. She'll say something blunt like, 'life can be lonely' and I'll be like, 'yeah it can' and that's it. Then we just crack on. It's nice"

From new playwright Bebe Sanders and award-winning company Poor Michelle, Violet is a new play about human connection and inter-generational friendships. It quietly explores themes of mental health, dementia, and loneliness without forgetting the often funny and absurd moments of ordinary life.

Time: 22.35
Running time: 50 mins

DANIEL KITSON: SHENANIGAN

On most Tuesdays, I go to a café before football for lunch with my friends Tim and Isy. Last week, the café had a really appealing special on the board which involved roasted cauliflower, pickled cabbage and babaganoush. The lady behind the counter referred to it as "The Shenanigan". Which I very much enjoyed.

This show will have absolutely nothing to do with that meal, that lady, that café, those friends, playing football or Tuesdays but I have to call it something otherwise they can't put it in the system.

Something new, vaguely experimental, unfinished and frankly, quite unlikely to ever be finished, by Daniel Kitson.

Time: 22.35
Age guidance: 16+
Running time: 90 mins
Dates: 4 , 5 ,7, 8, 10, 11, 12, 14, 15, 17 ,18 August
Tickets only available via the Summerhall website
