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…Umbrella Man.
|Umbrella Man is a Scottish spoken-word story about a man who tries to prove the Earth is flat. Imagine if Phoebe Waller-Bridge tried to write the Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner after a week-long bender in Inverness. Add live music, beautiful singing and daft comedy, and you’ll get Umbrella Man.|

|Name of your show:||Umbrella Man|
|Venue:||Summerhall Red Lecture Theatre|
