In response to the current crisis, some of the cast and crew of The Satyricon produced this video with the words of poet John Donne.

November 2020: The Satyricon

Petronius' bawdy comic satire comes to life in the Festival Theatre Studio, Edinburgh. Follow three young men in ancient Rome as they fall in and out of bed with each other - and with the many women and men who cross their path. Guided by narrator Gaius Petronius and with a group of cantankerous actors portraying every other character, we accompany the three through stories of deception, seduction, thievery, tragedy and more.

A comedy of words and action. A spectacle that is funny, thought-provoking, uncomfortable, tragic, satiric and satyric. A view of sexual relations from the Roman perspective - and the Roman perspective viewed from today. A reminder that actors have a life beyond the stage. All this and more in The Satyricon.

Sunset by Martin Foreman

We intend taking our successful one-woman play Sunset to small theatres around Scotland and would like to pair it with another one-act play with a small cast suitable for an intimate setting. If you have such a play - preferably one that has been performed and had a good response - contact us (details below) for further discussion.
