SUMMARY

Walking the Tightrope is a selection of explosive, political short plays by stellar writers Caryl Churchill, Ryan Craig, Tim Fountain, Omar El Khairy, Neil LaBute, Gbolahan Obisesan, Mark Ravenhill and Timberlake Wertenbaker, exploring Freedom of Expression in the arts in the UK.

Written in response to issues of censorship and boycott that arose due to the cancellation of cultural events in 2014, including at the Barbican, Tricycle Theatre and Underbelly, these eight five-minute plays explore contrasting views on Freedom of Expression. A number of the plays previewed at Theatre Delicatessen, London, but Walking the Tightrope, as it will be seen in Edinburgh, is a world premiere of exciting new writing.

Admission: £15.50(£14.50)
