★Stars★ all round for Underbelly Untapped shows

16th Aug 2018

Back in March 2018 our Untapped award winners were announced.  The award is presented by Underbelly and The New Diorama Theatre to three companies to present their work at the Festival Fringe.

This year's three shows were chosen from a shortlist of 13 companies whittled down from 316 entries by a panel of judges from around the country.

The three selected (dressed. by This Egg, It's True, It's True, It's True by Breach Theatre and Queens of Sheba by Nouveau Riche) have TAKEN EDINBURGH BY STORM this year.  With reviews and accolades flying in left, right and centre and a total of 63 STARS between them!
