Dates, Times and Prices


In a holding room, participants wait. A pageant is about to begin. No call time, perpetual purgatory. Following a scorching premiere at NOW 23 Festival, music-duo and dance company Bullyache make their Edinburgh debut with Tom. Blending the myth of Orpheus with the DWP, Tom is a vertigo-inducing pop-culture collision of working class and queer expression. With original live music and dance, Tom oscillates between hyper-speed pop, ambient waves, and auto-tune vocals. Bullyache and cast burst into song, they fight, f***, live, laugh, and love... deconstructing the price of being in a world that demands too much.
