Candlewasters: November 2014

A collection of short, new writing from the frenzied minds of the Edinburgh University Theatre Company.


Friday 21 November 2014


Bedlam Theatre


£4.50 / £4.00 / £3.50


Kirsten Waller / Rory Kelly / Frank Machin / Rosie Gailor / Joseph Shaw / Mikey Burnett


For the second time this semester, we invited the frenzied minds of the EUTC to bare their artistic souls, and submit short pieces of writing in an effort to entertain you and find the gratification they never received from their parents. This is the result.

So if you’re looking for a cult classic in the making, a brutal monologue, a buddy comedy crime caper, a beautifully observed relationship drama, an ill-advised slasher flick, or a pitch-black family comedy - pop along! It’ll definitely be unlike anything you’ve ever seen before.

There will be tragedy. There will be comedy. You will laugh and you will cry… not necessarily in the right order.
