"Sunset" by Martin Foreman
Submissions sought for one / two other productions
Arbery Productions will put on three one-act shows, each running one week (6 days) in a prime location off the Royal Mile.
Sunset - a one-woman play - has not been performed since successful runs in two London theatres in 2013.
Our second production is under discussion. For the third production (and the second if discussions do not bear fruit) submissions will be sought from Edinburgh-based theatre creatives;
the winning group will get free theatre hire and publicity for the Fringe run. Details to be posted in November.
