The Arches’ award-winning, critically acclaimed music and theatre spectacular Whatever Gets You Through The Night comes to The Queen’s Hall in Edinburgh as part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe (Tue 20 - Sun 25 August 2013).

Created by Cora Bissett (Director of the Olivier award-winning Fringe smash Roadkill), with Swimmer One and David Greig (Midsummer, The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Heart, Charlie & The Chocolate Factory), Whatever Gets You Through The Night features brand new words and music from: Errors, Alan Bissett, Rachel Sermanni, Withered Hand, David Greig, RM Hubbert, Wounded Knee, Alan Spence, Ricky Ross, Kieran Hurley, Emma Pollock, Kirstin Innes, Isabel Wright, Swimmer One, Bigg Taj, Stef Smith and Talkingmakesnosense.

Showcasing new work from over 20 writers, musicians and artists from across Scotland, this funny, moving, reflective and utterly celebratory show incorporates music, theatre, cabaret and circus to create a portrait of a country between the hours of midnight and 4am.

From a heartfelt goodbye on the shores of Loch Lomond, a Skype affair between two people who have never met, a man searching for a gay lover in ‘the palace of light’, a stoner in meltdown, and a glorious Broadway-style homage to Scotland’s other native dish, chips and cheese, meet lost souls, party animals and dreamers in a snapshot of an entire nation at its most vulnerable and revealing.
