Edinburgh University alumnus Ella Hickson’s ‘Eight’ first premiered on Bedlam's stage ten years ago and went on to win a plethora of awards and critical acclaim. The play is made up of eight monologues from eight characters, such as an eighteen year old boy in France, a Betjeman-reciting escort, a New York gallery owner and a lonely ex-serviceman. These monologues examine the effect an image, commerce and sex-conscious society have on our generation, and are all funny, sad and deeply moving. Eight is as much a celebration of life as it asks questions that cannot necessarily be answered.
