Destiny dreams big.

She's gonna be an MTV Base backing dancer, you watch. If J-Lo can make it outta the Bronx then Destiny can make it off the Hill Rise estate. She's fearless, ferocious and up for the fight (she's had to be).  A "captivating" (★★★★ The Guardian) show that follows a teenage girl growing up on a Chippenham council estate. Born below the breadline, she's desperate to see beyond the neighbourhood and find hope in hopelessness. A recipient of The Pleasance 2021 National Partnerships Award with Bristol Old Vic FERMENT.

Beg For Me

In this riveting new play by Rosa Maria Alexander, follow how one young man's radicalisation leads him to the steps of the US Capitol. Beg For Me explores the implosive intersection of violent misogyny, the alt-right and digital extremism. One year on from the storming of the Capitol, the US has experienced a "peaceful" transfer of power – but have the forces that brought thousands to protest the results of the election changed? Beg For Me delves into the mindset of toxic male behaviour – with dark consequences.

How to Keep Up With the Kardashians

Following their sell-out shows in Manchester and London So La Flair make their Edinburgh debut with their cabaret campaign against keeping up culture. Based on interviews with women and non-binary people aged 5-60, this is a dance party protest about shaking our asses to the rhythm of our own drums, reclaiming power by redefining beauty and confronting the ugly truth of our obsession with perfection. Expect an epic playlist, belly laughs, brave truths and high vibrations. Sorry Kim, not this time.
