Capital Converse (PLAY)
DOORS 7:30pm // £7
CAPITAL CONVERSE - Pandorum Theatre Company presents: CAPITAL CONVERSE by Mikey Burnett
A flat in Leith, two best friends, and a conversation of hilarity, betrayal, and heartache. It's a bitterly cold December night in Edinburgh and twenty-somethings, Frank and Malky, are together in the flat they share at the foot of Leith Walk. Malky's only recently been kicked off the dole and has all but a single pound coin to his name. To make matters worse he's also still reeling from being dumped by the love of his life and woman of his dreams. He is soon though about to discover that his best pal Frank may have had something to do with his current desperate state.
