Gilded Balloon Teviot (Venue 14)

Written by James Cary this is the story of Martin Luther (not Martin Luther King) told by 3 perfomers through sketches, songs and dancing. On paper this sounds like a naff university student idea cobbled together over croissants and Double Decaff lattes with a caramel infusion, but in the hands of a talented writer and performers this worked perfectly.
Compiling an Edinburgh festival spread sheet is all about a balance between seeing favourite performers whilst leaving time to discover new favourites. For me the joy of a festival is uncovering an unexpected gem. "A Monk's Tale" fits that category.
