Calling all shameless eavesdroppers!

18 Aug

The press release below is for a friends Edinburgh Show which is basically a tea & cake experience with a different. Let me know what you think? Does this idea rock your world or would you like to eat tea and cake in peace & quiet.


An original theatrical experience playing at the Edinburgh Fringe is giving audiences the unique opportunity to openly eavesdrop on other people’s intimate conversations. Award winning director and actor Tanya Alexander’s “Tearoom” launches playgoers into the heart of the homely world of the tearoom.
Audiences are invited to settle at one of the tearoom’s cosy tables with cake and tea, and shamelessly eavesdrop on the tearoom’s twelve visiting characters.

Amongst the alluring safety of the domestic sugar spoons and piping teapots, secret loves and hidden desires unfold as the play’s personalities explore the dark back-stair passages of their relationships and the many imperfect ways humans love.

Hailed by press critics as ‘outstanding’, the Fringe production of Tearoom follows a sell out tour across tearooms in Dorset in April last year. Its unique concept gave audiences such a memorable theatrical experience that many have already booked to eavesdrop a second, and in some cases, third, time.

Tearoom offers festival goers the chance to enjoy a break from the busy rush of the Fringe, and give themselves a tearoom oasis that will not leave them hungry for food nor thought.

Henderson’s of Edinburgh will be supplying top quality cake for Tearoom performances fresh from Henderson’s Bakery, whilst tea boutique and café eteaket will be supplying ethically sourced tea and coffee.\


The Tearoom can be found at 28 Lauriston Street, Edinburgh, EH3 9DJ. Performing mornings at 10.30am and afternoons at 3.00pm from Monday 22nd August to Sunday 28th August.

Performance time is 2 hours including an interval.

Ticket prices start at £15 with concessions available. Cake, tea and coffee included in the ticket price.
