With time being precious during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe we challenged this year’s acts to deliver a 50-word elevator pitch for their show. This time it’s the turn of Achilles.
Scotland’s acclaimed Company of Wolves reimagines the myth of Achilles in a heart-stopping solo performance. Fusing storytelling, movement and song, Achilles is the epic story of a man’s exorcism: the burning out of his grief, rage, and humanity. “A thrilling experience” The Scotsman; “Breathtaking” Reviews Hub.
