SAWNEY returns in a self-funded run at the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The show was subsequently shutdown over "desecrating Scottish culture" and "actively acting against the spirit of the festival".



 "Sawney Ha'peth's Free Cringe Festival - 45 minutes of our lives, in which we had little or no idea as to what was happening all around (literally) us. Whatever it was - and there are many possibilities - it was utterly compelling; even if it was, at the same time, unsettling, unnerving, disconcerting, and sonically uncomfortable. This is either performance art at its best, or, a lot of nonsense that's presented as art - you decide! If you do go and see this - and please do, if you're of an adventurous nature - please tell us what you think it's about. Perhaps then, it'll all become clearer to us. We loved this. We stood, applauding wildly, at the end. Worth a visit, if you dare.
