Pipeline Theatre Company
Spillikin: A Love Story

‘Spillikin' makes audiences laugh and cry at the same time, with the added bonus of a state of the art robot on the stage. It brings together two ends of a relationship, interwoven in flashback, born of the unlikely pairing of a fiery, Debbie Harry wannabe, and a shy, awkward technophile – Sally and Raymond. At the end of a long marriage, Sally's mind is starting to deteriorate. But Raymond has been planning ahead. His parting gift to her is his life's work: a robot companion. Pipeline Theatre bring you their critically acclaimed Edinburgh production as part of a national tour. After the show there will be a Q and A with the actors, creative team and the robot himself, giving you a chance to meet this remarkable piece of technology 'up close and personal', and actually interact with it. ***** Broadway Baby "Beautifully evocative and moving." ***** The Scottish Mail "Electric" **** The Guardian "A unique and intriguing production"

No Man's Land

Following their hit run on Broadway, Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart return to the West End stage in Harold Pinter’s No Man's Land, broadcast live to cinemas from Wyndham’s Theatre, London. One summer's evening, two ageing writers, Hirst and Spooner, meet in a Hampstead pub and continue their drinking into the night at Hirst's stately house nearby. As the pair become increasingly inebriated, and their stories increasingly unbelievable, the lively conversation soon turns into a revealing power game, further complicated by the return home of two sinister younger men. Also starring Owen Teale and Damien Molony, don’t miss this glorious revival of Pinter’s comic classic. The broadcast will be followed by an exclusive Q&A with the cast and director Sean Mathias.
