Sub Rosa returns for Edinburgh Fringe

The Citizens Theatre is associated with more than one show at the Edinburgh Festival this year. David Leddy is remounting his award-winning Citizens co-production, Sub Rosa. This labyrinthine gothic tale is a striking and innovative piece of promenade theatre.



Re-created in association with the Citizens, David has transferred his play to the Masonic Lodge that is - Hill Street Theatre in Edinburgh. With a srtrictly limited capacity, we'd advise booking early. This is definitely one you'll be telling your friends about for quite a while.

A late-night gothic Victorian promenade for small audiences in a Masonic lodge, by award-winning 'theatrical maverick' (Financial Times) and 'site-specific genius' (Scotsman). A haunting, darkly comic tale of yet another chorus girl burning to death. Meet Flora McIvor and witness her meteoric rise to power in a corrupt music hall. Bloodthirsty coup or red velvet revolution? The management is getting away with murder...

"Haunting ... magnificent ... stunning" ***** (Scotsman)
"Ravishing ... chilling ... exquisite" **** (Guardian)
"Tremendous ... vivid" **** (Herald)
"Style, suspense, panache" ***** (Metro)
"Compelling ... brilliant ... cunningly seductive" **** (Financial Times)
