We are delighted to reveal full tour details of our co-production with Marilyn Imrie of The Fair Intellectual Club. Written by award winning comedian Lucy Porter, the play was a Fringe 2014 sell out success at The Assembly Rooms.
The Fair Intellectual Club is a funny challenging and moving play about teenage love, friendship and betrayal set in the dawn of the Scottish Enlightenment. In the words of Lucy Porter – think Mean Girls meets Heathers!
The Fair Intellectual Club tour opens at the Tron, Glasgow then tours to Edinburgh Napier University Morningside Church Theatre; The Lemon Tree, Aberdeen; the Byre Theatre, St Andrews and Assembly Roxy, Edinburgh before finally heading to the WOW Festival at Southbank Centre, London & Cambridge, on International Women’s Day – 8 March.
One of the best plays I have seen on the Fringe. A light and airy exploration of the the lot of eighteenth century women. I laughed out loud all the way through and near the end felt teary as well. (while still laughing) Great script by Lucy Porter and well-acted. Lots of witty comment on 21st century issues. (Would love to say more but don’t want to spoil the surprises). Anne Hay
