From castles to endless festivals, Edinburgh city is well known for being steeped in culture. Planning to make a trip to Edinburgh this spring? Read our rundown on Edinburgh theatre breaks in May.




The list of productions going on in Edinburgh during may is countless but let’s start with a few “hot picks” and go from there!


If perhaps you’re looking for a love-drama why not check out “The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time” directed by Marianne Elliott. The play has won SEVEN 2013 Oliver Awards, becoming increasingly popular, is a National Theatre production, don’t miss out as it takes it’s debut national tour.


Or maybe would you prefer something a little more classical? How about an opera! Check out The Scottish Opera: IL Travotore. The last time this was performed on a Scottish stage was 2001. This dim and inauspicious production by Peter Watson grants this gargantuan opera the gravity it warrants.


Find out about more options available at The Royal Theatre Haymarket.


Perhaps the Performing-Arts aren’t for you?


There is always the movie theatre, something a little more in “everyone’s” taste.

Check out some drama with A Royal Night Out


Noted as a charming and spirited delivery of both Princess Elizabeth and Princess Margaret friendship and the VE Day night celebrations.


Or you could perhaps go for something a little more humorous and go see Hot Pursuit!


A comedy feature film starring Reese Witherspoon, Sophie A Vergara and John Carroll Lynch where Reese and Sophia make a determined friend in this comedic film. A law abiding yet unskilled policewoman watches her life turning-tables when she is missioned to defend the spirited widow of a drug lord. Watch and laugh as they dart from one side of Texas to the next, fringing bullets, dodgy policemen and dangerous bandits.


Laugh out loud humor at it’s best!
