Hidden Door has returned to Leith for a second year, expanding in several directions – to put on more shows and more different kinds of shows in more spaces for longer hours.
The Hidden Door pop-up arts festival is to return to this year’s venue in 2016 and is calling for proposals for ten pieces of theatre to stage.
Hidden Door Festival struggling:
The innovative Hidden Door Festival 2015, which has taken over King’s Stable Yards to huge critical acclaim, needs to hike ticket sales to reach its break-even target.
✭✭✭✩✩ Honest reflection:
Sexuality, drugs and respect come under the spotlight in Musselburgh youth company Scratch the Surface’s semi-devised production in Hidden Door Festival’s Peely Room Theatre.
✭✭✭✩✩ Noisy experiment:
It’s hardly silence in which the Ludens Ensemble perform their three person take on Macbeth, seen in its first work-in-progress outing in the Peely Room of the Hidden Door Festival.
✭✭✩✩✩ Depths hidden:
Dark and vicious, Andy Corelli’s take on Gorky’s The Lower Depths for Siege Perilous strikes all the right tones at the Hidden Door, but doesn’t always reveal them as clearly as it might.
✭✭✭✭✩ Hidden talent:
Echoes of times past creep into Hidden Door with Annie E Lord’s entrancing piece of site-specific storytelling, Hooves.
