Written in China centuries ago, Pu Songling’s Strange Tales has been adapted for stage by BAA’s Pauline Lockhart, the acclaimed immersive theatre company Grid Iron, and the Traverse Theatre.
Filled with intrigue, mysticism, magic, sensuality, and a dash of terror, Strange Tales will draw you into a world full of mischievous fox spirits, yearning ghosts and shapeshifting creatures where anything and everything is possible.
But be warned – unless you come to these tales with an open mind and brave heart, you may never be able to escape them…
This thrilling immersive production uses puppetry, movement and cutting-edge digital technology to thrust you right into the pages of the tales themselves. Adapted by Pauline Lockhart (Schooled) and Ben Harrison (Jury Play, Spring Awakening) from a selection of Pu Songling’s original tales, Strange Tales will wrap itself around you and make you shiver in delight and fright on Edinburgh’s dark winter nights.
Runs 30 November – 21 December.
