DELIVEROO ANNOUNCES FOOD DELIVERIES WITH A SIDE OF SOLILOQUY
- Trained actors will perform “Ham-let: To Eat or Not To Eat”
- Customers simply need to add #edinburghbinge to their order notes
- Activity will be raising money for Bedlam Theatre Company
Deliveroo orders will be manned in the Scottish capital by actors who will perform a Shakespearean inspired monologue – written by Scotland-based actor Adam Butler – HAM-let’s To Eat or Not to Eat.
Simply by writing #EdinburghBinge within the notes of their order, diners are in with a chance of receiving a personal performance of the specially commissioned play – at no extra cost.
The production will be performed by the Bedlam Theatre Company – a unique, entirely student run theatre in the centre of Edinburgh. Any tips given to the actors will go towards supporting the group in putting on over 40 shows a year.
An excerpt from To Eat or Not to Eat:* “It’s just too much to bear, / To grunt and sweat under a hungry mouth, / But then the dread I fear with bated breath, / The undiscovered offer, 2 for 1 / No extra topping charge, puzzles the will / And makes us rather bear those bills we have / Than fly to others that we know not of?”
Joe Groves at Deliveroo said: “Edinburgh is known for its sell out shows across the city during Fringe and we don’t want anyone to miss out. Immersive dining is so popular, we thought why can’t we deliver drama as well as mouth-watering meals to enhance the dining experience for our customers.”
