STARTS AT THE TRAVERSE THEATRE
'Did you notice I was talking, that I was living my life, that I was living a life here too?'
Don your headphones and get ready to eavesdrop in this latest solo audio experience from ThickSkin (How Not to Drown). Celebrating the stories and people who are the heartbeat and spirit of Edinburgh, Eavesdropping asks who gets to define a city, who gets to be it’s guide and who’s story matters.
Eavesdropping takes audiences on an adventure through familiar and unfamiliar streets in Scotland’s capital, revealing new sides to and stories of the people who (may) live here. This location-based walking audio play by Hannah Lavery (The Drift) and Sarah MacGillivray, the latest in ThickSkin’s Walk This Play® series, will encourage audiences to look differently at the rich tapestry of people you may walk past every day, whether you notice them or not.
Through narration and original music blended with the sights and sounds around you, Eavesdropping takes you on a journey of imagination and discovery, where the audience is central to the action.
Produced in association with the Traverse Theatre and directed by Jonnie Riordan (Nigel Slater’s Toast), Eavesdropping continues our exploration of the many different facets of Edinburgh, presenting new and surprising perspectives on the city and its stories, and encourages audiences to get out and rediscover their city this summer.
