The Trial

About The Trial

Tieta comes home to a small, conservative Brazilian village in search of justice – the audience will be the jury.

Part stand-up, part gig, part storytelling The Trial is a dynamic and interactive piece of theatre that asks if we can reject authority in order to live an love in different ways.

Loosely based on Jorge Amado’s 1970s novel Tieta do Agreste, this new work presented at the Edinburgh Fringe by StoneCrabs Theatre, is a timely expose of today’s social and political struggles of the LGBTQ+ community in Brazil and elsewhere.

At its heart is Tieta, a young person who was shunned and driven from their small town in the northeast of Brazil for being queer only to return as a trans woman asking for the townsfolk to find her justice.

Performing six different roles, playing a variety of instruments and enlisting dance, speech and song – Inês Sampaio delivers a hugely energetic performance that raises a multitude of questions about gender and sexuality.

Age 14+

Venue 236: Greenside @ 6 Infirmary Street, EH1 1LT
