Sondheim at the 2022 Edinburgh Fringe

If you're heading to Edinburgh this summer, be sure to catch one of the Sondheim productions running in the Fringe...

Company

The Edinburgh University Footlights (Scotland, UK)

On the eve of his birthday, Bobby struggles to find a wish to blow out his candles. Over a series of dinner parties, intimate conversations and first dates, the perpetually single Bobby grapples with the pros and cons of marriage with the ‘good and crazy people’ that are his married friends. After a five-star, sell-out Fringe run in 2019, the Edinburgh University Footlights are thrilled to return to the Fringe with Company. With music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by George Furth, this groundbreaking musical is an honest and intelligent look at love, vulnerability and relationships.

Assassins

Pacifica Christian High School (USA)

Sondheim's classic satire of a culture of violence and political turmoil. This one-act Tony winning musical stands alone in the American musical genre.

Staged at theSpaceUK, get up close and personal with some dangerous and dazzling characters from the most turbulent chapters of American history.
