About

Preview: Thurs Aug 4

Elle meets Eve. Her eyes are green like guacamole, she has posh-hair and a freckle on her chin and when she touches Elle’s arm…the world spins off its axis.

This loud, proud love story is heart-warmingly honest and belly achingly funny. Stuffed full of those stomach-flipping-time-stopping moments that everyone will recognise.

It’s brutal. It's beautiful. It’s a “moment moment.”

First seen at The Royal Exchange Theatre, Bloody Elle is full of searing original music performed live on stage. Building loops and layers of sound, you are transported to a 10,000 seat arena with a ten-piece band or to an intimate sweaty, packed out gig in the back of a pub.

Grab a pint, let’s go.

Nominated for 'Best Regional Production' at the WhatsOnStage Awards, 2022.



The Traverse Theatre is funded by Creative Scotland and The City of Edinburgh Council, with additional support from The Scottish Government Performing Arts Venues Relief Fund.
