Back by popular request!

After a break during which we presented Tolkien's Leaf by Niggle, we are returning to the Fringe with The Man Who Planted Trees. This will be the 10th Fringe with this much-loved show and once again we're delighted to be back at the Scottish Storytelling Centre. We will be in the 2.30pm slot in the last week of the Fringe, from 20th-27th August. Prior to that the man behind the dog, Rick Conte together with The Scientific Romance Theatre Company will be presenting the witty and wonderful adaptation of HG Wells' The Time Machine.
