Festival hits return to the Citz

The Edinburgh Fringe kicks off today, but we are taking a break from the festivals this year.

We've had a great run in recent years including Yellow Moon, The Sound of My Voice, The Girl in the Yellow Dress and The Monster in the Hall.

In September, we're pretty excited to welcome the return of David Greig's two super-slick festival hits to the Citz; the National Theatre of Scotland will present our productions of Yellow Moon and The Monster in the Hall from 6-22 September.

If you've not seen these shows before, they were both written to be performed in an intimate studio space by 4 actors and pretty much no props or set. Both shows have scooped awards, toured internationally and generally blown audiences away!


Yellow Moon: The Ballad of Leila and Lee is a modern Bonnie and Clyde tale about two teenagers on the run

"Outstanding…leaves you feeling as though you’ve watched a full-length road movie, with added intimacy and intensity." 
The Scotsman ★★★★★ on Yellow Moon


The Monster in the Hall is a low budget indie comedy musical about a girl on the verge of a nervous breakdown played out by four actors and a big fat motorbike which goes vrrooommm.


"a tightly drilled ensemble, passionate, playful and yet serious, gripping us one minute, cracking us up the next, before melting our hearts”
The Guardian ★★★★ on The Monster in the Hall 

DOUBLE-BILL
On Sat 8, 15 and 22 September the two shows will both be performed on the same evening.

SEE BOTH FOR £20 - includes the double-bills or individual performances booked on separate nights. Call Box Office 0141 429 0022 or book online.

In the meantime, if you are heading through to the festival, despite the Citz not being there, our Artistic Director has been working with young actors on an exciting musical for the Fringe.

Dominic Hill is directing The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland's One Company Productions in Stephen Sondheim's "Company" at C venues from 1-27 August. Book on the EdFringe website.

Here's a wee clip from YouTube of some of the tunes from rehearsals:
