Announcing our new touring play for 2023 and the Roundabout @ Summerhall programme at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe…

Strategic Love Play, written by Miriam Battye (Succession S4, little scratch, Scenes with Girls) will preview at Belgrade Theatre in Coventry in July, before opening at Roundabout at Summerhall in August, and then embarking upon a UK tour, with dates to be announced very soon.

About Strategic Love Play:

So they’ve both swiped right. Now they’re meeting for the first time. Facing each other. As if that’s a normal thing to do.

But she’s being uncomfortable, and he’s a total bore. The vibe is horrific and the banter is even worse. But something is keeping them in their seats. Something is making them stay. Welcome to your hot date.

With acid wit, Miriam Battye’s new play takes a scalpel to modern romance, interrogating what we really talk about when we talk about love.

At Edinburgh Fringe this August, Strategic Love Play will be performed in rep alongside a programme of visiting artists, presenting theatre, cabaret, comedy and loads more from 2 – 27 August.

Roundabout will also play host to LATER, a programme of late night one-off performances from some of the best artists at the Fringe. Take a lucky dip on a ticket, and you’ll get a show from one of the hottest companies and artists at the Fringe. Previous performers include Travis Alabanza, Rosie Holt, Phil Wang, Wright & Grainger, Lauryn Redding, The Wardrobe Ensemble and Middle Child. Bring your drinks in and round off your day the right way.

Tickets for all shows are available to buy now from EdFringe and Summerhall.
