September’s almost here. It’s the aftermath of the Fringe and whilst some may be thankful for the peace and quiet, others are missing the endless stream of entertaining shows. But look no further than The Brunton Theatre. Local to Musselburgh, and just a short walk from us here at Eskmills, The Brunton boasts a diverse selection of shows to satisfy your cravings.
National Theatre Live: Fleabag
Come and see the witty one-woman show that was the inspiration behind the BBC’s hit TV series Fleabag. This award-winning performance pushes limits as the extremely upfront lead character, Fleabag, navigates life in London. Don’t miss your chance to see this show, which the New Yorker dubbed a “legitimately hilarious show”.
