RashDash’s Two Man Show, a hit of 2016’s Festival, sees the female-led company returning with their take on patriarchy and its place in the twenty first century, in a co-production with Newcastle’s Northern Stage.

Fleabag by Phoebe Waller Bridge will also return to Edinburgh following three runs at Soho Theatre, a UK tour and a smash-hit BBC series, in a co-production between Soho Theatre and DryWrite.

Tickets for all three shows will be available from May 2017 and our full Edinburgh Festival Fringe programme will be announced soon.
