Pickled Republic & Pickle Party

About Pickled Republic & Pickle Party

Welcome to the jar.

Here, tragedy floats and the lonely wail of an abandoned tomato cuts through the salty atmosphere.

Come hear the lament of lives not lived, watch the chaotic energy of the search for meaning and try to find the connection between these decaying vegetables and your own existence.

Be prepared, bring a napkin, will you laugh or cry? Who knows. You’ll leave all stirred up but none the wiser.

A surreal theatrical cabaret for adults with puppetry, mask, and perhaps a poem that promises more vegetables per pound than any current supermarket. So, don’t worry about inflation when there is disintegration.

The performance will be followed by a pickle party in the Traverse bar.

Presented as part of Manipulate Festival 2024, running from 1–11 February at venues across Edinburgh.

Pickled Republic & Pickle Party is part of the Traverse's £1 Ticket Project.
