J runs so fast she bursts into a million tiny pieces, her atoms unknitting themselves and spreading across the universe. Blair stands on a broken pier with a glass of white wine in one hand and a pint of Guinness in the other, looking up at the stars.

Following folk-hit Beulah (★★★★★ The Scotsman) and Babylon (‘Ruddy gorgeous’ The Guardian), The Flanagan Collective return with a tale of freedom, immortality and planting trees for those who come after us. A show wound from spoken word, storytelling, soaring live music and good, honest heart and soul.

Fable is on at 18.30, Anatomy Lecture Theatre, Summerhall, until the 30th August, excl Mondays. For more information and to book tickets click here.
