Talk Show

Fresh insight, music and ideas from unexpected places.

We invite artists, authors and thinkers to come and watch a show with us. Hosted by David Greig, they take to the stage to share their response to the themes of the play with our audiences. Expect ideas, insight and stimulation through short talks, song, music, poetry and conversation.

Last season’s contributors included climber Jamie Andrew and ultra-runner Jasmine Paris talking about the will to survive for Touching the Void; folk singer Karine Polwart lending musical accompaniment to the theme of Scottish stories for Local Hero and Val McDiarmid discussing women and victimhood for The Duchess [of Malfi]. Keep watching our website for information and updates on themes and guest speakers for Season 2019/20. 

The events are free but ticketed and we welcome donations to support future events.
Full dates can be found in the dates and times section.
