The Wheel is an unnerving new play by Zinnie Harris (Further than the Furthest Thing), directed by National Theatre of Scotland Artistic Director Vicky Featherstone.
Set amid a world in conflict, The Wheel charts the journeys of a little girl looking for her father and the woman who has chosen to help her find him. The play asks us whether it is possible to travel through a world at war and remain unaffected.
The Wheel opens for early previews Thu 28 & Sat 30 July, then runs at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, from 6 – 28 Aug. (Not Mondays, times and ticket prices vary. Check Traverse Box Office for full details. Booking fees may apply.)
Also, The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart returns to Edinburgh pub, the Ghillie Dhu.
The show, devised and created by David Greig (Dunsinane, Peter Pan) and Wils Wilson (Home Shetland, Gobbo), is based on the Border Ballads and Scottish folklore. It toured to tremendous critical and popular acclaim earlier this year, and has been nominated in four categories at the 2011 Critics Awards for Theatre in Scotland.
The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart runs at the Ghillie Dhu, Edinburgh, from 2 – 27 Aug, 3pm (not Mondays. Ticket prices vary, booking fees may apply.)
Tickets are available from the Traverse Theatre Box Office.
