Stolen Elephant Theatre adapt works of literature and events of history for the stage. We are based in Auld Reekie, Edinburgh. Our style is often comic, sometimes poetic, and occasionally we even provoke thought. Music of some form or other is to be found in all our performances. Either in its heart, or in its soul!
Our current show is Tam O’Shanter, Tales & Whisky – a celebration of the ‘Gothic’ poems of Robert Burns. Also featuring comic performances of the traditional Scottish folk tales The Witch of Fife and The Haunted Ships. Our previous production Shackleton and his Stowaway was published by Methuen and was an Ed Fringe Sold Out show. Whilst a certain McGonagall awaits . . .
