Sean Hay

in White Image Description

Welcome to the world of White. Full of birdsong and birdhouses, it gleams and dazzles and shines in the night. Two friends look after the birdhouses and make sure the eggs stay safe. The world is bright, ordered and white. But high up in the trees, all is not white. Colour appears. First red… then yellow… then blue…

White is a playful, highly visual show for very young children and is a perfect first time theatre experience.

Touring across Europe between 20th October - 17th December and playing at the Beacon Arts Centre, Greenock, from 12th - 17th December.

Dominic Hill brings his trademark theatrical style to this twist on a classic fairytale.

in Tinsel Toon Image Description

Tinsel Toon is full of lovely wee streets.
Lots of different people for you to meet.
Good morning.  Good afternoon. How do you do?
It’s nice to be nice.  It’s good to see you.
Lending a hand or helping one another out.
That’s what the Christmas spirit is all about.
But smiles turn to frowns, storm clouds loom.
What’s happening this Christmas in Tinsel Toon?

Robert Jack

in Rhinoceros Image Description

A hit of the Edinburgh International Festival 2017 and returning to The Royal Lyceum Theatre, Edinburgh, in Spring 2018.

Written by Zinnie Harris and directed by Murat Daltaban, this production sees actors from both Scotland and Turkey collaborating in this insightful political and comical piece of thrilling theatre. 

In a sleepy French provincial town, a rhinoceros rampages across the market square. Another crushes someone’s cat. A woman sounds the alarm: it is the townspeople themselves who are transforming into these raging beasts. As more and more of the citizens embrace their future as rhinos, just one man – the drunkard Bérenger – refuses to transform. But why does he feel so out of step with everyone else? And what will his refusal to conform cost him?

★★★★★ (The Scotsman) - 'blazing with theatrical energy and wit' 

★★★★★ (The Edinburgh Guide) - 'an exposé of human behaviour, conformity and communication'

★★★★ (The Times) - 'fascinating and wildly stylish'
