Ravenhill for Breakfast

by Mark Ravenhill

Every day of the Festival, Mark Ravenhill will write a new short minute play that offers a succinct glimpse at modern life. Taking their titles from the grand novels and movies of the past, each play asks the question: is the epic experience possible in our increasingly insular lives?

The plays will be performed the following day over breakfast in Traverse Two. Play readings feature a new team every day taken from the pick of acting and directing talent at the Edinburgh Festivals.

A Paines Plough and Traverse Theatre production.
