Endless Sunset Oblivion tells the story of Reuben – a young songwriter attempting to combat the accelerated problems the world is facing. Packed with heart and courage, it should be straightforward… but can one song save the world? Through a compelling blend of live music and life-affirming, often humorous storytelling, The Lonely Together's Mike Baillie weaves an enchanting David and Goliath tale for the modern age – a story on the state of the world.

This show is an hour and a half. I knew that going in and I was happy on the assumption that it would be a story told mostly through song, like a concept album performed live. Alas it was mostly monologue with maybe 3 or 4 songs scattered in. With some serious cuts to the script and a lot more music (it’s a show about music!), it may have been alright.

A really great performance from Mike of The Lonely Together. Incredibly thought-provoking content about the state of the world, mixed with some immense acoustic versions of the tracks from their new album. This is a MUST see!

Really loved the show. It was great storytelling, poetry and music. Mike is one of Edinburgh's finest musicians, without a doubt - with such a gift for crafting epic-sounding songs so the subject matter, with Reuben's journey to deliver a mind-blowing, world-changing track, is ideal to showcase his music, while he enters a new world of the one-man-show format. Good acting, some well-placed funny moments and, of course, emotive songwriting.

Can a song save the World?! In a World full of lunacy and lost hope The Lonely Together front man Mike Baillie strikes a tone that many shows wouldn't dare. In a blend of pertinent story telling, beautiful song and poetry there's lots of to invest in, enjoy and ponder. Think art-house versus raw talent; honest reflection of the highest order. An experience you won't get anywhere else this festival. Do it!
