Under Another Sky by Charlotte Higgins
Sat 17 Aug 13:45 - 15:15
A Theatrical Exploration
When Guardian chief culture writer Charlotte Higgins set out to explore the Roman occupation of Britain, not only did she embark on a work of serious history: she began a personal odyssey with her partner (and fellow classicist) in his ageing VW camper van. The hugely entertaining result, Under Another Sky, offers clues about the origins of Britain’s current political landscape. In partnership with Edinburgh’s Royal Lyceum Theatre and playwright David Greig we present a theatrical response to Higgins’s triumphant work of non-fiction. After the 45-minute performance, the actors, musician and director are joined on stage by Higgins to discuss – among other things – how the Caledonians viewed the Roman invaders.
