Dr Stirlingshire’s Discovery

Antony Strachan can be seen in Dr Stirlingshire’s Discovery by Morna Pearson and presented by Grid Iron, Lung Ha Theatre Company, RZSS Edinburgh Zoo & Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh

Dr Vivien Stirlingshire is a cryptozoologist. Yes, that’s right, a cryptozoologist! She travels the world seeking out hidden and, as yet, undiscovered “animals” – the ones that they tell you aren’t really there – you know the type: the Yeti or that Loch Ness Monster.

Dr Stirlingshire is unveiling her latest discovery at the world famous RZSS Edinburgh Zoo. Her brother Henry, the Zoo Manager, has organised a grand welcoming party but really he believes his sister has an overactive imagination – “she’s not a proper scientist; after all she believes in The Wild Haggis, no really she does!”

This family friendly show takes you on a journey through RZSS Edinburgh Zoo, where you will meet various characters and forms of life, from squabbling Zoo guides to dancing penguins (not real ones of course) to…. Well, the truth is Dr Stirlingshire doesn’t know what to call it yet.

Suitable for ages 5+
