On Stage

The Outpost


Following on from the success of her Edinburgh debut 7 years ago – BAFTA nominee and Summerhall Meadow award winner ‘24 Yolanda Mercy is returning to the stage with a new theatre show “Failure Project”. Failure Project is a “Comedy drama”…. Or “Dramedy” about Ade. Ade is a successful writer, or so it seems. She has everything she has ever wanted; her career is flying, she’s (kinda) moved out of her mums house, her situationship isn’t as complicated as she expected. Life is perfect?! But things don’t always go how you plan, and Ade is about to find that out. The Failure Project explores what it means to “fail” and is it possible to recover?
