Dates – At the Speed of Sound

From Helsinki, a brand-new speed-dating concept for theatre lovers.  Relax and enjoy two sparkling comedies about first dates in restaurants, from prolific Finnish screenwriter John Lundsten.

Afterwards there follows an optional session of super-sonic, high-energy, low-risk speed-dating hosted by our actors. The perfect way to find that soulmate/casual partner/festival pal, or simply experience some encounters with random fellow humans in a congenial setting (delete where applicable!). Price includes show, speed-dating and fast-track notice of your mutual attractions. All genders and ages (18+) welcome!

Simon Macallum can be seen in this interactive experience at Summerhall (Venue 26) at this year’s Fringe. Shows from the 2nd – 27th August and tickets can be bought on the website.
