A first-century comedy is being reimagined with a modern perspective this October, bringing an impressive range of new talent to the Edinburgh stage.

Tickets available online – card payments will be available on the door.
In a seedy motel room outside Oklahoma City, Agnes, a drug-addled cocktail waitress, is hiding from her ex-con ex-husband.
