Come and visit the Edinburgh International Festival and who knows where your mind might end up.

It could be a place in which fearful whispers flow nervously beneath the shrieks 0f madmen, and treacherous intentions masquerade as tender words.

Perhaps you’ll find yourself hidden in the shadows, overhearing the dark secrets of a forbidden, clandestine and destructive love triangle.

Or maybe it will be the court of a king, where you listen to tales of fear, suspicion and betrayal.

This summer, internationally acclaimed theatre directors such as Peter Stein, |v0 van Hove, Calixto Bieito, Philip Prowse and Luc Bondy will be exploring how the power and beauty of the spoken word can create stimulating, perceptive

and often disturbing environments.

With so many celebrated performers, directors and plays from around the world, the Edinburgh International Festival gives you a unique opportunity to see some of the finest theatre this year. For a free brochure or to book tickets, call the Box Office on 0131 473 2000.

All you’ll need is a little imagination.
