In Edinburgh, between 1827 and 1828, science and murder cling together in a dance of death. Sixteen people are slaughtered by Burke and Hare and the Devil and all his works prowls the streets of 'Auld Reekie'. Dr Robert Knox, scientist, doctor and anatomist supreme, waits in Surgeons Square to buy bodies for the sake of advancing medical knowledge. His door is chapped, a body is delivered, money is paid and no questions are asked. A trail of terror leads from West Port to the dissection table of Robert Knox. Murder will out and a price must be paid, even by the anatomist supreme. Doctor Knox will have to pay that price.
Commissioned by The Royal College of Surgeons as part of the celebrations for the re-opening of the Surgeons' Hall Museum.
Dickens' Mystical Christmas Fable brought to life - A Perfect Christmas Treat!
Olivier Award winner, Guy Masterson, veteran of many hit solo works such as Under Milk Wood, Animal Farm and Shylock, now brings us Dickens' classic festive fable. Famed for bringing multiple characters to vivid life, Masterson recreates Scrooge, Marley, the Fezziwigs, Tiny Tim, et al, in an enchanting, performance that will dazzle and linger long in the memory.

This production transfers from Staveley following performances there in December.
The children are played by adults in this warm, witty and funny play, directed by Fliss Pocock. Mrs Horrocks' class of seven year olds are about to perform their nativity play at Flint Street Junior School for the proud mums and dads – and the occasional social worker. Squabbles arise when Gabriel wants to play Mary, the Star grumbles he's not a proper star like they have at NASA, Herod won't stop waving to his mum and dad and the subversive Innkeeper is determined to liven up the traditional script. And then the stick insect escapes……..
