Celebrating 25 Years, Big Telly is the longest established professional theatre company in Northern Ireland.
The company’s range and scale of work is unparalleled, with its reputation for innovation built upon distinctive professional theatre productions which tour nationally and internationally; creative collaborations; and pioneering community-based participation projects. We concentrate on the visual potential of theatre through fusion with other art forms such as dance, music, circus, magic and film to create a unique sense of spectacle.
Melmoth the Wanderer
Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2 - 25 August
