“One of the most exciting voices to emerge in recent years” The Independent

Get a first look at Ross Sutherland’s latest multi-layered show before it slaps audiences in the face at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe.

Inspired by the Eighties teenage experiment of matching up The Wizard of Oz with Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon, Ross Sutherland will draw out a series of stories from his life, synchronising words, second-for-second, with the images behind him, using nothing but found-footage from a videotape belonging to his Granddad.

Come and find out for yourself what happens when fragments from old films and TV shows are looped, destroyed, and then re-built into a powerful audio-visual poem on memory, death and reruns.

Buy your ticket now, or buy a joint ticket for the Live Literature Double Bill with If Destroyed Still True. 

About Ross Sutherland

Ross Sutherland is a Time Out Award winner (with poetry collective Aisle16) and former The Times’ Literary Star of the Year. His work has been featured on BBC2’s Newsnight Review and BBC Radio 1, 3 and 4.

His previous one man show, The Three Stigmata Of Pacman (2010) enjoyed a string of rave reviews and was Time Out Critics’ Choice for its subsequent London run. In 2011, he created the interactive game Hinterland, which took place across the streets of Edinburgh. And at last year’s festival, he created interactive auto-theatre piece Comedian Dies In The Middle Of Joke, which recently enjoyed a sell-out London residency.
