Roundabout at Summerhall 2022

by Paines Plough

In August 2022, our portable pop-up theatre venue Roundabout will take over Summerhall at Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Our in-the-round auditorium will host three premieres from trailblazing playwrights Dipo Baruwa-Etti (Half-Empty Glasses), Sami Ibrahim (A Sudden Violent Burst of Rain) and Laura Lindow (The Ultimate Pickle) and the return of Chris Bush’s critically acclaimed play Hungry which premiered at Roundabout in 2021.

These will be performed in rep alongside visiting artists presenting theatre, cabaret, comedy, family shows, drag and more from 3 – 28 August.

Visiting artists also presenting work include YESYESNONO, Ellie Keel Productions, Maimuna Memon, Francesca Moody Productions and Nouveau Riche.
