2 FOR I TICKETS FOR INSIDE YER THU 7 - THU 14 AUG
A radical production of Lorca’s masterpiece, re- imagined as an intensely sensuous visual and movement experience, built around a musical soundtrack written and performed by Italian DJ, Papaceccio, and Francesco Santalucia.
Yerma tells the tragedy of a woman in rural Spain, trapped in a loveless, repressive arranged marriage, whose desire for a child becomes so unbearable she murders her husband. A passionate, dream-like poem of longing and despair, Yerma is one of Lorca's most beautiful and emotional plays.

Veteran Comic actor David Cann, best known for his pioneering work alongside Chris Morris in Brass Eye and Jam, makes his Edinburgh Fringe debut alongside Jonathan Rhodes (Confetti) in Schadenfreude Productions revival of David Mamet’s classic play.
The relationship between a veteran actor and a younger, rising rival is perfectly observed in this brilliant two-hander. Mamet's comedy, where youthful ambition meets a passing era, mixes backstage banter with scenes from the repertory plays in which the two actors appear.
