In 1974 London, three musicians and their manager seal themselves inside an underground recording studio to complete an Americana album, unaware that materials in the walls are driving them to the brink of insanity. As artistic and social tensions flare, the atmosphere grows thornier, the music grows stranger and Everglade Studio's mixture of creativity and claustrophobia demands its pound of flesh. Black Bat Productions returns with this ferocious comedic thriller by Nathaniel Brimmer-Beller, following multiple critically acclaimed Fringe runs. 'Genius' ***** ( 'Fringe theatre does not get much better than this' ***** (Violet Curtain).

Without a doubt the highlight of Fringe 2023. The musicality of this show is outstanding from lyrics and arrangement to performance and execution. The show deserves to be seen in many venues beyond Edinburgh. Thank you to this talented young team. 100% recommend.

This piece takes you on an unexpected journey, I was hooked throughout. From the outstanding original music to the beautiful and nuanced characters, this is a gift of theatre, packed together with a juicy plot twist. Cannot recommend it enough!

Unlike any of the other shows I saw at the Fringe. Fantastic original music and sense of eeriness that you don't usually find in the theatre. Definitely worth a watch!

Really enjoyed this. The music was outstanding and worth going to see on its own. The narrative captured the increasing chaos of people suffering the effects of a toxic building. I wanted a part 2 to see what happened next! There weren't many people in the audience when we went and I feel it deserves to be packed.

It is rare to find a well-written and well-acted thriller at the Fringe that truly earns its claim to the genre, but In Everglade Studio absolutely does so.
