This is a delightful dramatisation of one of Oscar Wilde's most touching and poignant stories, in a new, devised musical adaptation. The story itself is rarely staged, which is a pity as it is a perfectly formed piece of work – quite unforgettable after you have seen it. "The Nightingale & The Rose & Other Tales"" is an ideal way of escaping from our dreary, dangerous, modern world. Do make sure you don't miss this one.

Pravda – A Fleet Street Comedy
By David Hare and Howard Brenton
Directed by Nigel Fullerton

Scheming media moguls. A UK government at war with Brussels. Newspapers run like propaganda pamphlets. That's right – it's the 1980s!

Meet Lambert Le Roux, a South African businessman hell bent on acquiring the British press from the foppish, upper-class elite. It's the revolution Fleet Street hasn't been waiting for. But can the British people trust a millionaire media man from the Southern Hemisphere with the ownership of their beloved papers? The answer isn't exactly front page news.

This scorching satire, originally starring Anthony Hopkins and Bill Nighy, was first performed at the National Theatre and won the 1985 London Standard Best Play Award.

Wed to Sat at 7.30pm
Running time approx.120 mins including an interval

Tania Edwards & Pierre Novellie: Edinburgh Previews
On from 21 Jul 2018 to 21 Jul 2018
Pleasance Theatre
by pleasance

Tickets: £5

Tania Edwards

Not My Dog is a hilariously dark exploration of modern life and our need to (mis)represent it from stand up Tania Edwards, who has written for Mock the Week (BBC 2), Stand Up For The Week and Twit of the Year (Ch 4). Tania recently supported Katherine Ryan on tour. Her scintillating one-liners were crowned top jokes of the Fringe (Mirror), James Acaster’s best Edinburgh Fringe picks (The Guardian), and Glamour Magazine’s top female comics.

“Cuts daggers with sharp one liners” (Glamour Magazine)
“Fantastically seamy side to the material... also great with audience banter... sublime... brilliant” (Chortle)

Pierre Novellie

Last year, Pierre gave you observational comedy for people who think they don't like observational comedy (***** Metro), this year it's satire for people without a team. Pierre's views don't please anyone 100% of the time, so who exactly is his demographic? Other white South African Manxmen? When you feel alienated by life, mock it vigorously.

Pierre was nominated by industry website for the Best Club Comedian award in 2016 and 2017.

More propaganda:
'Dawn of a major talent' (The Guardian) .
'Hilarious' (Sunday Times).
'Very funny' (Scotsman).

Rob Auton: The Talk Show (work in progress)

This is a comedy/theatre/spoken word show about talking by award winning writer and performer Rob Auton. Following on from his shows about hair, sleep, water, faces, the sky and the colour yellow, Rob now turns his attention to talking because he is ready to talk about talking.

“A genuine original. Poetical, philosophical, humane, completely charming and funny to boot.”(The Guardian)
“Charming, eccentric and uplifting, Auton is a talent to watch.” (The Independent)
“He is entirely compelling to watch. He’s a poet/writer/talker and it’s funny in parts but that’s not the point – there is something else happening, I’m not entirely sure what it is but it’s great and it wallops you in the belly.” (Daniel Kitson)
“Just Sad.” (Vanessa Feltz)
“Weirdly moving in ways I still can’t quite define. I haven’t seen anything else quite like it, or him.” (The Stage)

Steve Bugeja

Voted at school most likely to be forgotten. The reunion was in February, apparently. BBC New Comedy Award Winner returns following three critically-acclaimed shows. As seen on Stand Up Central (Comedy Central), Love Island Aftersun (ITV2) and Radio 4's Fresh From The Fringe.

"Big Laughs" (Guardian)
“Truly hilarious” (Fest)
‘A polished hour of plentiful jokes and compelling storytelling’ (Scotsman).
‘Puts gags front and centre of a compelling narrative’ (
‘An eye for comic detail that’s all his own’ (Guardian).
‘An instinctive genuine comic’ (
‘You'll like this new stand-up, an out and proud nerd’ (Independent).
