Summerhall Festival - Red Lecture Theatre
Umbrella Man is the story of a young man from the north of Scotland who tries to prove the Earth is flat. Using poetry, storytelling and improvised piano to take audiences on a journey to the outer limits of common sense, Umbrella Man comes to Edinburgh fresh from a critically acclaimed tour of the southern hemisphere. Hilarious, moving, Scottish spoken word theatre. 'A monumental triumph' ***** (BroadwayBaby.com). 'Bittersweet, haunting, tour-de-force' ****½ (Channel 44, Adelaide). 'Rich and memorable, it's the layered storytelling that leaves a lasting impression' **** (Fest).
