Our 3 older youth theatre groups are back at the Traverse Theatre this June with a Trilogy of plays to celebrate our 15th Anniversary: TIDES and tickets are on sale now.

Come and see them as stand alone pieces or catch all 3 to get the whole story- you can watch them over 3 nights or all in one day on the Saturday afternoon and the more shows you see the more you save!

February 2024 – Low Tide.

Porty Beach: not only the perfect place to see a once-in-a-lifetime meteor shower, but also your ideal venue for a full-blown existential crisis. Whilst all of Edinburgh looks to the stars, rumours spread of an impending apocalypse; maybe the Mayans were a few years off! With overwhelming hopes, deep-seated fears, and empty bank accounts to be confronted, there’s only one thing for it – have some ‘special’ brownies (with chips on the side) and dig a massive hole.

Performed by the Thursday 14-18s group.

TIDE 2: ADRIFT

by Isla Cowan

June 2024 – Ebb Tide.

It’s been 15 weeks since the huge hole appeared. 15 weeks since Anna went missing; they say she was last seen heading into the sea. Everyone wants to move on – except Jenny. When a message in a bottle washes up on Porty Beach, Jenny is convinced that Anna’s still out there and means to prove it. Despite the doubters, she plans to face the waves and join her friend…whatever the cost.

Performed by the Monday All Ages group.

TIDE 3: MY KIND OF WEIRD

by James Beagon

September 2024 – High Tide.

‘She’ likes ‘her’, ‘they’re’ well over ‘him’, and ‘he’ doesn’t even know ‘they’ exist. Romantic rendezvouses and excruciating entanglements collide in this new, almost-Shakespearean, anti rom-com. On the last day of sunshine that Edinburgh will see for some time, will romance be dead by sunset? Why is there STILL a massive hole on the beach? And will a message of love in a very timely bottle save the day?

Performed by the Tuesday 14-18s group.
