Rebel, Geek, Emo, which were you? Or Popular, even if you didn’t want to be?
Bringing together the finest of Scotland’s new theatre talent, The Network, with Grid Iron, the company that has been instrumental in shaping innovative British theatre over the last 20 years and the Pleasance, one of the largest and most respected organisations at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, The Brunch Club is a site-specific homage to all those classic coming-of-age movies.
Devised with the Ensemble and written and directed by Grid Iron Co-Artistic Director Ben Harrison, The Brunch Club traces the origins of teenage cliques from ‘the invention of the teenager’ in the 1940s to how they manifest in the world we live in today. Eight young people gather in a university student union cafe where they form alliances, fall in and out of love, and learn from the friction and energy created between one clique and another.
The Brunch Club will be performed on the following dates: Aug 2-5, 7-12, 14-19 and 21-24.
