Is there a dusty guitar propped up in your bedroom? A drum kit taking up too much space in your garage? A trumpet packed away in the attic? Well, it's time to blow off the dust. We're putting the band back together!

We are beginning work on a new show, Putting the Band Back Together. Working with Cultural Spring, we are collecting people's stories of giving up playing, and hopefully encouraging a few to start again. Tell us your story via Twitter, Facebook or email.

Thanks to all our fantastic Edinburgh audiences who saw Lands of Glass at Summerhall. We had a great time sharing the show with you. We can't wait for our Spring 2015 tour. Dates to be announced soon. In the meantime, read reviews and watch our trailer here.

Thank you to all our WeFund donors, who helped us take the show to Edinburgh. Your help has made a massive difference to us and our next steps!

We're proud, and excited, to be working with Streetwise Opera this Autumn. Annie Rigby is directing The River Keeper, a new opera by Nell Leyshon and Bridie Jackson. Performance dates and booking information here.

As well as seeing our shows in theatres and parks, you can also see us on paper, as part of Forest Fringe's Paper Stages. The project is a festival of performance contained within the pages of a book. Our piece, An Hour of Your Time, is a duet between a reader and their washing machine. Find out how to pick up your copy at the Paper Stages website.
