The Burning Eyes of the Prophet

, Edinburgh

Presented by Lung Ha's Theatre Company

The Burning Eyes of the Prophet takes place in a wasteland setting some time in the future.

It tells the story of a dying prophet whose last days are plagued by dreams of what might become of the world.

Disunity is brewing in the ranks of his followers as his demise becomes imminent. An impostor waits in the wings, the prophet's last hours are haunted by how life will be after his death.

The story unfolds over the course of one long, tortuous night. When dawn breaks a new regime might be in place...
