Dialogue Theatre Club: Thursday 3 October at 8.45pm
Dialogue Theatre Club is open to anyone who likes watching theatre and chatting about it too. It's a bit like a book group, but for plays and performances: you buy your own ticket to see the show, then come to the cafe to discuss it with other audience-members. No one involved in making the show is invited, so you can talk freely and all opinions are welcome. Audiences who saw the show at the Edinburgh festival are also welcome to join in.
