Edinburgh?

On a slightly different note, I would appreciate your feedback on the possibility of performing up at the Edinburgh festival. I know many of you have done so before, but let me outline the pros and cons as far as I can see them:
We have a gap from the 8th August for a week till the 15th, am trying to find a place that will have us for a weeks run to end the tour. We finish on the 6th in lower Highlands just one hour from Edinburgh and thus logistically it seems appropriate to go to Edinburgh.
It would be fantastic to really push the 'darker' side of the play, and Edinburgh would be an ideal place to do this. It would also be nice to have that final week in Edinburgh to watch some theatre and relax- a nice way to end the tour.

However Twelfth Night is not exactly 'classic' Edinburgh fodder, and we would really need to find a suitable place to have any chance of making some money back.

Thus I am asking your opinions on this- if you know of any venues- if you like the idea etc etc. Let us know asap

Yes please!!!
I`d love to go... Missed out a few years ago and would love to go this time round. I agree this would be a perfect finish for us.
I must warn you though, I have seen an advert for 12th Night in one of the papers asking for performers to play in Edinburgh, so we won`t be alone!!!
Haven`t a clue on venue...
Any ideas from you guys/girls???

Edinburgh sounds great and I have seen lots of Shakespeare up there. If it is sold in the right way (ie. dark and different) it could be great. I would look into C venues as that's where I find the best all around theatre is. Also the caves in the Guilded Balloon Venues are very interesting...have a look

I just wanted to write and support what Kaitlyn said about Venues the cave especially. They are a really interesting venue if we're going to explore darker aspects of the play. As well as this both these venues are situated well for audience to come to which is really important for Edinburgh.

I wish i knew more venues in the area, but i dont know the area that well. If theres anyway i could help, please let me know.
The more and more i read 12th night with the underlying darkness idea, just brings out so many human truths. And theres so much lost love, and for me that hits home right away, that true love maybe isnt real. and we are all hopelessly reaching to atain what we cant have.

I don't want to retract anything i've said, I just hope I dont sound like a fool or desperate. This is a completely unnecesary comment. Sorry.
