Description

North Wales, 1995. The rites and ceremonies of the Eisteddfod collide with the communion and transcendence of a rave. Lose yourself in this mind-bending play with music. Esmi is caught between the rave scene in abandoned slate quarries and the traditional culture of druids, clog dancing and poetry recitals. Join Esmi as she finds her tribe with help from the father of modern Welsh culture: an opium-addicted fraudster from the 1700s. Presented by Welsh company Dirty Protest Theatre. With original music by BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winners, 9Bach: 'Bards and beats come crashing together hilariously' **** (Stage).

Sorry girls. High energy, great voices and good story marred by awful sound quality. Boom boom boom meant we heard about 20% of the dialogue. Sort that out & we’ll back like a shot but until then I’m afraid it’s a thumbs down

We liked this show very much. It was fun, positive & original. Had pathos, comedy & music. Singing was outstanding. What a good fringe show should be.

This show is both funny and heartbreaking with an amazing soundtrack.
Fusing old and new cultures together and the challenges this brings beautifully.
Both stars of the show sing beautifully
The venue is brilliant and helps to make you feel part of the show

Just saw this...
Double Drop: electrifying performances and transcendant voices, in this high-N-R-G story of a young Welsh woman reconciling old and new culture in order to own her identity. Rave culture and tradition are fused together in this pulsating piece. Check it out at Summerhall... for the singing alone it’s worth the admission...

Mirain Haf Roberts is joyously effervescent as Esmi and well supported by the role-changing Emmy Stonelake.
