Raiser Theatre Heart of the Mind and A Useful Tragedy



This double bill of new plays by young writers gives two fresh twists on tragedy. The first challenges the limits of how we give and receive love, as a woman falls for a figment of her imagination. The second explores newsroom politics in the post-truth age, as a polished, ruthlessly ambitious news presenter loses her grip. These short plays by emerging writers Benedict Zephyr and Kayden Best, shortlisted in the top 10 writers in the National Theatre's New Views competition, have been specially revised for full debuts at this year's Fringe.

This show was part of our Edinburgh Fringe 2023 Edinburgh Fringe Programme
