Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2021 includes a walking play to take audiences to city's lap dancing quarter. This will be one of the key locations in a walking audio play which will also visit the site of an old meat market, a nightclub and a job centre.
Audiences for the play, which is being designed to be experienced individually via their own mobile phones or mobile handsets collected from the Traverse, will be taken to the currently locked-up Burke and Hare lap dancing club during the show, which will be able to be downloaded from 20 August. Audiences will be able to experience the walking play
Eavesdropping individually using their mobile phone or on mobile handsets which can be picked up at the Traverse Theatre.
The show is being developed by Manchester-based theatre company ThickSkin and the Traverse, with all the locations
within walking distancing of the theatre, which is at the heart of Edinburgh's cultural quarter.
The event is said to be aimed at encouraging audiences to look differently at the rich tapestry of people you may walk past every day, whether you see
them or not. It has been written by two Edinburgh-based playwrights Hannah Lavery and Sarah MacGillivray, and will be set to a soundtrack by composer Finn Anderson.
