Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2019

Performances Monday 5th – Saturday 10th August at The Royal Scots Club, 7pm and 9pm respectively.
The Merry Wives of Windsor by William Shakespeare
An uproarious tale of marriage, mischief, lies, and laundry.
In financial peril, the “Fat Knight” woos two women of Windsor in an attempt to swindle their husbands and regain his wealth. The wily wives are on to him from the start however, and plot their revenge with hilarious results.
Pool (No Water) by Mark Ravenhill
A group of bohemian artists. A pool. Everyone’s welcome. It’s fantastic, fantastic, fantastic…until the skinny dipping accident. Mark Ravenhill’s dark, witty comedy on betrayal and envy shows how one person’s success can rip apart friendships.
Auditions and rehearsals will be held at 18 Buccleuch Place, 1st floor in the Graduate Association offices. You only need to attend one audition session.
If you cannot make either of the audition dates and wish to audition, please contact us prior to the auditions to arrange another time. We will see people on ad hoc dates on an as needed basis prior to the last audition date. Audition times after the 28th of April will be arranged only if we are unable to cast the production based upon those we have seen at the conclusion of the announced audition dates.
Rehearsals will begin on Sunday 5th May at 7:30pm. Rehearsals will be 3 times a week on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday nights. The rehearsal schedule will be developed to accommodate any
unavailability listed on the audition forms.
The Merry Wives of Windsor will give a one-off performance at The Dell, the outdoor performance space at the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford. The tour will take place over the last weekend in August with a performance on 1st September. There are also plans for the production to give another one-off performance at The Dunbar Battery at the end of August. Details to follow.
