The Young Pretenders have arrived…


Team nabokov has arrived in the beautiful Burgh and we are raring to go! We had a lovely journey up on a train over flowing with equally excited thesps and we’ve made ourselves very comfy in our positively palatial nabohouse.

Jo Scotcher’s amazing set and the final members of tem nabokov arrive this afternoon, so there’s just time to fit in a few speedy line runs, an actual run in the case of Chris Starkie (its no accident that he is a vision of healthiness) and a slap up meal later- probably at Monster Mash if Mr Murphy gets his way!

Edinburgh’s already buzzing with posters, flyers and giant udders springing up all over the city. We fully intend to take advantage of the previews and see as much as we can, so we will keep you posted with our top tips.

Detailed schemes and strategies are in place to make the absolute most of our…shall we say brief tech, at the Underbelly and we can’t wait to finally see Jo’s awesome set and lighting whizz kid Jack Knowles’ work in all its glory. A last few costume bits to pick up and a Charlie hair cut for Woody is all that’s left.

It’s great to be back!
