Blushing Caligula Brief Candle



Deep beneath the streets of Regency Edinburgh lies a labyrinth of pitch-dark vaults, housing the downtrodden and hiding a criminal underworld. Within, Isla dreams of one day lifting her ill Mum out of their basement vault. Today though, her Mum’s birthday, just seeing her face for the first time in years will do. As Isla fights to find a candle, she discovers secrets about the place she calls home, and the people who run it, while the Great Fire of Edinburgh rages above. Class war meets climate emergency satire in this new play by David R. Ford.
