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.

The first part of Strange Town’s trilogy of ‘Tides’ to celebrate their 15th anniversary.

Performed by the Thursday 14-18s group.

TIDE 1: It's Not the End of the World is part of the Traverse's £1 Ticket Project.
