Comma Sutra & The Three Deaths of Ebony Black: Edinburgh Fundraiser
14 July, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm$35
Comma Sutra is an award-nominated musical comedy that celebrates grammar, language, and the joys of erasing apostrophes from café blackboards. Featuring a host of original songs ranging from audaciously pun-filled to downright saucy, Comma Sutra explores what it means to be a language nerd in an age of text speak and emoji. With a love of language that extends beyond just English, polyglot comedian Louisa Fitzhardinge switches effortlessly between four languages as she delves into sign language gone hilariously wrong and Germany’s penchant for weird and wonderful words, culminating in a show-stopping, multilingual finale.
The Three Deaths of Ebony Black is a critically acclaimed puppet musical, inspired by neuroscientist David Eagleman: “There are three deaths: the first is when the body ceases to function. The second is when the body is consigned to the grave. The third is that moment, sometime in the future, when your name is spoken for the last time.” Described as Death at a Funeral meets The Muppets, this intimate spectacle is as relentless as it is tender. Three acts, ten puppets, one corpse. An unforgettable farce and a love letter to lives well lived.
