21st December 2012, the day the world was meant to end. The day a cult leader’s apocalyptic predictions failed. Faye and Felix devoted themselves to a doomsday that didn’t come and now, having seen the world get continually worse over the past nine years, they’re confronting their former leader with their findings.

Following critical acclaim during their original August run, Breakfast Plays: New Tracks are back for a second helping this festive season!

This performance is delivered as an audio-only podcast, available on Acast, Spotify and Apple Podcasts. A transcript of the play will also be made available here.

The Breakfast Plays: New Tracks
are generously supported by the Noël Coward Foundation and the Turtleton Charitable Trust.

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.

We would like to dedicate Breakfast Plays: Second Helpings to the memory of the wonderful director and radio producer, and great friend of the Traverse, Marilyn Imrie.

Marilyn was a visionary creative force and generous collaborator, and we hope that the presentation of these plays reflect her passion for writers and the audio play form. Her belief in, and encouragement of, writers at all stages of their development has enabled so many exciting voices to flourish and important stories to be shared. We will take inspiration from her spirit, and can only hope to continue her incredible work
