A Reputation on the Edge at National Theatre

Title:
Exodus

Dates:
28 Jul 2022 – 21 Sep 2022

Exodus by the National Theatre of Scotland explores how far a politician will go in seeking office. In her bid to become the country’s leader, Home Secretary Asiya Rao prepares to make a major policy announcement which will establish her as the front-runner in the race. Aided by her calculating advisor Phoebe, she embarks on a publicity stunt starting with a photo shoot by the white cliffs of Dover. But rather than the tide washing her reputation clean, something else washes up. Is it an omen or an opportunity? The women are determined to keep their eyes on the prize, no matter the cost, even if it’s a human one. The production tours Stirling, Edinburgh, Peebles, Stornoway, Kilmarnock, Aberdeen, Glasgow, and Mull.
