: ‘The Great Dixoni’ by Luke Dickson at The Orangery
Merging contemporary theatre with clowning and illusion, Luke Dickson explores the magical aspirations of his father (Dixoni), a professional magician until his death in 1978. Lively, comedic, involving and occasionally emotional, the show explores the similarities between Luke and his father – the performer present on stage and the performer thirty years deceased. If you like clowning, magic and evocative true stories you’ll love the Great Dixoni.

Featuring Meat Raffle, Picture quiz, Test your strength, Plays and Pints Poetry, Darts and Dommys and a little bit more.
Featuring some of the wildest sketches and most anarchic characters from their comedy arsenal, this is a power hour that promises to blow your silly-bone to smithereens.
The Dog-Eared Collective are a sketch troupe of funnymongers championing a wildly anarchic and mischievously surreal brand of comedy. The troupe have a number of critically acclaimed Edinburgh shows to their name and have built a reputation as one of the sharpest sketch groups to emerge in recent years.
