There’ll be science fiction poetry from Jeda Pearl, a member of the Scottish BAME Writers Network

We’ll be entertained with an extract from sell-out show Witches’ Gets performed by Alex Delaney, and written by Noëlle Harrison

Witches’ Gets is a play about the Norwegian witch trials of Vardø, and this is a shorter excerpt of the larger play performed at both Cymera 2019 & Audacious Women 2020. Noelle is from Ireland and is the author of several books including The Gravity of Love and The Island Girls, and Alex Delaney is a Edinburgh Napier Creative Writing MA graduate and trained actor. 

Pim Wangtechawat & Sienna Vance will be delighting us all with their works. Pim is from Thailand and Sienna is from the US and they are both on the Creative Writing MA at Edinburgh Napier – a regular source of writers for Shoreline of Infinity.

and music will be provided by the terrific harp with electronics playing Aurora Engine – expect a mind bending set of original songs and music.

We’ve moved!

From March we will now be running Event Horizon at the Pleasance Cabaret Bar.  Much though we love Frankenstein’s, this move means we have much better accessibility – the door is straight off the courtyard. And the lighting and sound are much better, and the stage and layout means we can be even more versatile with our performers.

For our first show we celebrate International Women’s Day with a great line-up.

We’ll have the ever enthralling Shoreline Raffle, a Merch table groaning with goodies including the very latest Shoreline of Infinity 17.

And yes, we are charging a small entry fee from now on, but that does include £2 off any issue of Shoreline of Infinity, including the latest.

And if you are finding yourself on hard times, we do offer free entry for low earners.

Doors Open 7.30pm
