Our theatres have the wow factor

Be inspired by dance, drama, musicals and opera

EdinburghWows, a campaign that celebrates outstanding cultural experiences in the capital, showcases the city as a desirable destination all year round.

As part of their activities, EdinburghWows creates monthly ‘Wonder Walks’, taking people around the cobbled streets of Edinburgh to discover the best cultural offerings in the city. Whether you fall in love with an exhibition or a show takes your breath away, Edinburgh wows its visitors every day.  

We are delighted that EdinburghWows has chosen three of our shows this Autumn - Richard Alston: Final Edition, the National Theatres’ A Taste of Honey and Rona Munro’s new stage adaptation of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein - to feature in their September and October ‘Wonder Weeks’.

Richard Alston: Final Edition, 27-28 September at the Festival Theatre, is your last chance to see this outstanding company perform in Edinburgh with an outstanding bill of new and existing works that showcase the company’s unflagging record of creativity.

The National Theatre present Shelagh Delaney’s career-defining play A Taste of Honey on 24-28 September at the King’s Theatre. Starring Jodie Prenger, directed by Bijan Sheibani and featuring a live soul band on stage, this taboo-breaking drama is the perfect example of the outstanding drama we bring to the city.

Frankenstein, 21 to 26 October at the King’s Theatre, is a brilliant new adaptation of Mary Shelley’s Gothic masterpiece by Rona Munro and places the writer herself amongst the action as she wrestles with her creation and the stark realities facing revolutionary young women, then and now.

Discover EdinburghWows upcoming ‘Wonder Weeks’ and let Edinburgh take your breath away and set your heart racing this Autumn.
