Letters Live is proud and excited to be making its debut appearance at the Edinburgh International Festival in 2017, in what will be the festival’s 70th year. Both shows will take place on the festival’s final evening–Sunday, August 27th at 7pm and 10pm–in the city’s historic and beloved King’s Theatre.
Since 2013, Letters Live has moved audiences to both laughter and tears by celebrating the pain, joy and wisdom preserved in letters written throughout the ages, expertly brought to life by an ever-changing cast of some of the most acclaimed performing talent from around the world. Previous Letters Live performers have included such luminaries as Benedict Cumberbatch, Olivia Colman, Jude Law, Juliet Stevenson, Russell Brand, Kylie Minogue, Gillian Anderson, Nick Cave, Thandie Newton, Riz Ahmed, Oscar Isaac and Jarvis Cocker.
Letters Live is inspired by Shaun Usher’s best-selling Letters of Note, and by Simon Garfield’s To the Letter.
Priority booking for all events at Edinburgh International Festival will open on Wednesday, March 15th. The general public will be able to buy tickets from March 25th. Prices range from £18 to £28.
