A co-production of the Traverse with Tricycle Theatre and Datum Point/Paines Plough, the work will star Blythe Duff, Belinda Lang, and Simon Chandler.

Also at the Traverse, Rob Drummond will present Bullet Catch, a piece about the life of magician William Henderson, the conclusion of which is the attempted catching of a bullet shot by an audience member, a stunt which has killed at least 12 illusionists.

From August 8-11 at The Assembly Rooms, pro-wrestler turned author turned comic Mick Foley will present a piece based on his experiences escaping the shadow of WWE. Daniel Kitson will present his newest stand-up comedy show, Where Once Was Wonder from August 5-26 at The Stand Comedy Club.
