In 2016 and 2017 Strange Town’s young company (18-25) worked with 3 writers to create a brand new radio drama called ‘Dead Ends’

Every year in Edinburgh thousands of tourists flock to the Old Town to hear tales of skullduggery, ghosts and history. An army of tour leaders take the willing flocks to hear tell of when Edinburgh was awash with blood, witches and folklore. But scratch under the surface today and you will find some young people reliving their own nightmare every night as they tell tall tales to the willing and the gullible. Low wages, long hours and pretty much the last thing they want to be doing. Dead Ends tells the tale of a young team intent on creating their own history!

Radio Summerhall will be releasing an episode of Strange Town’s Radio Drama ‘Dead Ends’ each week, you can listen back to them here: or on Mixcloud, links below.
