Theatre for breakfast! Free pastries! A bold, ridiculous, heart-breaking attempt to hold an accurate picture of the whole world in your head. A place with only five official haircuts for men. A place where you confess your sins to voicemail. A place where a radio station only broadcasts silence. 'Gorgeous... Makes you think about the world, makes you laugh about the world, makes you glad to be part of the world in all its madness – what more could you want?' (TotalTheatre.org). Returning to the Fringe for the British Council Edinburgh Showcase. www.thirdangel.co.uk

It's New Year's Eve in the household of Bill Ding and Anne Arky. The wine is flowing and the guests are buzzing, all unaware as to what is about to happen. As the clock strikes twelve, chaos descends upon the party. Whose New Year's will be cut short and whose will be a blur? Come along to this amusing get together, to watch as all the characters bring their own story to the party. From fear of loneliness to never finding love to bickering couples and hand guns.
Figs in Wigs have been taking objects for granted, exploiting their physical forms by placing them onstage and manipulating them for our own selfish advantage. We have objectified objects for too long: it’s time to put the spotlight in the spotlight, let the staging upstage us and finally show our objects some affection. We, Object is an absurdist amalgamation of visual puns, word play and amateur dancing. (NB: This is not a show about small things). 'Deliciously watchable' (Stage). 'Dali would be proud' (Scotsman). 'Clever, witty and wonderfully irreverent' (BroadwayBaby.com).

From the team behind the critically acclaimed two-handed version of the Ragged Trousered Philanthropists comes a new drama based on the events in Tolpuddle, Dorset, 1834, when a group of farm labourers were convicted and transported by an oppressive government for swearing a secret oath and forming a trade union to fight against a succession of wage cuts inflicted by the local farmers. This important and relevant story is told through Townsend Productions’ entertaining theatrical style of powerful storytelling, animation and exquisite musical arrangements by revered folk musician John Kirkpatrick.
From the creator of the 2012 Edinburgh 'Must See' ( Stage) show When Alice (Cooper) met (Prince) Harry comes a brand new work about the occasional advantages of being an outsider and living between the waves. Praise for Alice Mary Cooper's previous work When Alice (Cooper) met (Prince) Harry. ‘Outstanding stuff’ (RipItUp.com, Adelaide Fringe). ‘Five stars’ (BroadwayBaby.com, Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2012). ‘Must-see’ (Stage, Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2012).
