Breakfast Plays Ed2016

It’s early in the morning. Your body is present at the Traverse Theatre but your mind is barely there. Not to worry. After being greeted with a warm roll and longed-for coffee, you’ll get a morning-size portion of ideas from the ‘Breakfast Plays’ to awaken your mind. This year’s plays look at the growing role technology has in our lives. ‘How To Ruin Someone’s Life From The Comfort Of Your Own Beanbag’ opened the series, exploring the murky line between real and virtual consequences and identity. Although the performance was a little rough around the edges, it was fresh and thought-provoking. This new play series ensures that you’ll begin your morning with something that will remain with you for the rest of your day.

Traverse Theatre, until 28 Aug.
