A site-responsive theatre production set in student cafés.
Scotland’s brightest new talents, The Network Ensemble, take on the cliques in a homage to classic coming-of age movies.
Eight young people gather in a university student union cafe where they form alliances, fall in and out of love, and learn from the friction and energy created between one clique and another.
With a sound-track that will take you right back to the tears and triumphs of finding your place in the world, The Brunch Club challenges expectations and exposes the limitations of judging a book by its cover.
Site-specific masters and seven times Fringe First winning Grid Iron, in co-production with SDTN and Pleasance Futures transform Levels cafe bar during Fringe 2019 before transferring to University of the West of Scotland Ayr for performances as part of their Fresher’s Week activities.
With a cast, design and stage management team drawn from recent theatre graduates from all over Scotland, The Brunch Club is a fanfare from the last years of adolescence and an exploration of the continuing need to categorise ourselves in a increasingly complicated world.
