Approximately 5,000 Miles

On Tuesday, at 8pm US time, Fable opens in New York.

Fable exists because we bumped in to a man in a pub in a tiny village on the edge of Scotland. Fable has been made between that village, a town on the other side of Scotland, a village in North Yorkshire, a festival in Suffolk, a month in Edinburgh, a week in London and now here - in NYC. The show has been made across nearly 5,000 miles, an incredible bunch of artists and a whole host of you - audiences, supporters, friends.

We are so proud to be associated with all those people and all those places. And we're proud that all those miles and conversations have led us here.

Thank You.

And we have one more favour to ask. If you know anyone in or around New York, or know someone who knows someone then please share this with them. The show details are here -

- and use the ticket code 'Flanagan' to get $10 off your tickets.

Share far and share wide.

We hope we'll see you there, friends!

FABLE from The Flanagan Collective

'A show with heart and soul' **** Broadway Baby
'Bags of charm' The Guardian

'Theatre with heart' Ian Rankin

A woman runs and runs, faster and faster until she explodes in to a million shining pieces. 
A man stands at the edge of a broken pier, a glass of white wine in one hand and a pint of Guinness in the other, looking up to the stars. 

Following a critically acclaimed run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Fable transfers to The Soho Playhouse for a strictly limited run. 

Fable is a show about two people, from very different places, who profoundly change each others lives. Inspired by a real village on the far west coast of Scotland, Fable is a play about what we stand for and what we can change. It is a play about what we believe in and what we chose to put up with. 

Wound from storytelling, spoken word and live music, Fable is the latest show from critically acclaimed UK theatre company, The Flanagan Collective who make their New York debut at The Soho Playhouse. / @FlanCol
