Event details

Somewhere in the far future, the last genetically engineered survivors of the human race come together one last time in the library at the end of time. Stored here in the bowels of Antarctica is the sum total of all human knowledge, as well as a DNA library of every species that has ever lived. Unfortunately, everyone has forgotten how to read. And the libratrians are beginning to suspect that God (or biology) has a sense of irony.

Yes it's Talent night in the Fly Room.

For one night only - Songs and poems and sketches and stories from the genome that brought you Peter Arnott's plays The Breathing House, White Rose and many more.

Tickets cost £6 and will be available from the Traverse Theatre box office or by calling 0131 228 1404
