Set against the backdrop of Edinburgh’s old Town, HN1 Acting and Performance students from PASS at Edinburgh College have collaborated to create a new immersive geo-location audio performance* of Daniel Defoe’s ‘A Journal of the Plague Year,’ for our socially distanced times. Transporting you back to the 1600’s this tale is not to dissimilar to the one we face some 350 years later.

 

The Plague, a great leveller for Society or indeed more divisive?

 

Download and discover a new audible world that lives hidden in the streets of Edinburgh’s Old Town.

 

*This digitally responsive performance is thought to be the first of its kind from students in a Further Educational Context.
