An open book emits colorful, ethereal light which swirls around five people dressed in elaborate, fantasy-inspired costumes. They pose dramatically as if performing, with colors corresponding to their attire: blue, green, red, purple, and orange.

Queer storytelling show ‘Remythed’ heads to Edinburgh Fringe.

Bet'n Lev Theatre are delighted to announce their ‘joyful, evocation of queer mythology’ (Arifa Akbar, Guardian) Remythed will be coming to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2024. The 60min show will be on every day at 1.45pm from Tuesday 13 – Saturday 24 August at the Assembly Roxy, Downstairs.

This uplifting, joyous, and thought-provoking show tells five stories, with five actors, playing more than 30 characters between them. Myths and legends are rediscovered, reshaped, and reformed via the personal history of the performers.

From Sheherazade to Anansi, via Lady Godiva, figures from legendary stories appear anew - Queer stories have been erased from our most-known tales for far too long, and now, LGBTQIA+ collective myths return to their rightful place in our hearts and minds. Remythed joyfully allows audiences to reimagine what queer history can look like.

Bet'n Lev Theatre is a proud home for global queer storytelling. Remythed premiered at VAULT Festival 2023, winning ‘Show of the Week’. It toured in 2024, achieving sell-out shows for the run at  Clapham Omnibus.

Title: Remythed: 13 - 24 August

Venue: Assembly Roxy, Downstairs   just off Drummond Street, Edinburgh
