Tipping The Velvet

Presented by The Royal Lyceum Theatre, Edinburgh: 28 October – 14 November 2015

“I used to think that whenever I thought of you I was all lit up, like a candle. I was afraid people would notice.”

Written by Sarah Waters
Adapted by Laura Wade
Directed by Lyndsey Turner (Olivier Award 2014)

It’s 1887 and Nancy Astley sits in the audience at her local music hall: she doesn’t know it yet, but the next act on the bill will change her life. Tonight she will fall in love… with the thrill of the stage and with Kitty Butler; a girl who wears trousers. Giddy with desire and hungry for experience, Nancy follows Kitty to London where unimaginable adventures await.

Acclaimed playwright Laura Wade (Posh, Royal Court & West End) brings Sarah Waters’ audacious bestselling novel to The Lyceum’s beautiful Victorian stage in an electrifying new adaptation, directed by Olivier award winner Lyndsey Turner (Chimerica, Almeida & West End).
