DO IT NOW: Manual Override

The Edinburgh Fringe Performance Exchange - That's our focus going forward; work with Western Mass artists to bring high quality performances to Scotland and select dynamic new work there to bring back to the Valley. It started by taking The Red Guitar to Scotland in 2016 and we returned with Mairi Campbell's PULSE and Nassim Soleimanpour's White Rabbit Red Rabbit.  We are headed back this year and will need regional support to keep up the momentum.


  Serious Play is taking John Sheldon's The Red Guitar back to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival for the month of August.  After a 5-Star review in 2016 from The Herald, a return was only a matter of time.

Eager to bring even more talent from Western Mass to the world stage in Scotland, Serious Play will also produce DO IT NOW at the Fringe Festival this August.  Tony Vacca (percussion) and Paul Richmond (spoken word) will join John Sheldon in a new piece called Manual Override.
