An exciting addition to Edinburgh’s new writing scene. Showcasing extracts from four brand new plays read in front of a live audience, with a chance to carry on discussions, meet the team, writers and actors in the comfort of the Roxy Snug Bar. • The Courage of Rabbits by Laura Paterson After the death of their parents, Josie is forced to take on the responsibility of her autistic brother Edwin. A resentment grows as she struggles to cope with how much Edwin relies on her, stopping her from living the life she imagined; while she is simultaneously wracked with guilt as she realises he never wanted this either. • Potential by James Beagon Rome wasn’t built in a day, but Stockport might become a city overnight – that is, if Terry gets the form in on time. But when his colleague Cat decides to leave for greener pastures, a generational conflict is sparked – just how much do we owe to our home town? • Dearly Distracted by Fiona Wiedmann Hogmanay occurs once a year, every year. Swathed in memories, nostalgia and hope or angst for the year ahead, three young friends step out of their party to muse upon these things. • The Inevitable Unravelling Of Us by Emilie Robson The play tells a modern love story between a male and a female backwards. Starting at the end and ending at the beginning, the play charts the highs, lows and fatal flaws that lead to their demise, orbiting entirely around the bed they share.
