Strange Town Touring Company are on the road with our new show “And… And… And…” by Isla Cowan visiting Edinburgh Secondary Schools. After 2 performances at the Traverse Theatre we’ve received a raft of lovely 4 star reviews. Click on the red links below to read them….

Claire has to find a job
And Cassie’s UCAS form is due
And exams are coming up
And there’s litter on the beach
And there’s bills to pay
And prejudice to fight
And essays to write
And this mess to clean up
And there’s not enough time
And the water is rising
And the trees are burning


Cassie and Claire have been best friends all their life. Now, in their final term of high school, the world weighs heavy on their shoulders: will the stresses of the future finally push their friendship to its limits?

And… And… And… is an urgent new play about the impacts of climate anxiety and the mounting pressures on young people today. Exploring the double-edged power of social media and collective action, this play asks, how do we come together when we feel so much like falling apart?

Scotsman ****
“Cowan weaves the conflict between them into a powerful short show – beautifully performed by Caroline McKeown and Tiana Milne-Wilson.”

North West End ****
“Isla Cowan’s beautifully written new play is a gem… It deserves a wider audience”

Corr Blimey ****
“should quite rightly be seen in schools, venues and party-political conferences across the nation: a vital, and riveting piece”

Bouquets and Brickbats ****
“This is a youthful and exuberant approach to the subject, created for and by the generation who have been handed the poisoned chalice of a devastated planet”

The Quintessential Review ****
“This cracking new play from Edinburgh’s Strange Town Theatre is touring Edinburgh schools, and is precisely the sort of mature work we should be placing in front of young minds.”
