The Secret's Out!
10 days until Amnesty UK and The Guilty Feminist Bring the Secret Policeman’s Tour to the Edinburgh Playhouse
Festival Fringe fever is in full swing and we are counting the days until comedy star Deborah Frances-White (host of hit podcast The Guilty Feminist) brings our brand new Secret Policeman’s Tour to the Edinburgh Playhouse on Saturday 24 August.
An excellent line up of comedians and entertainers are ready to take the stage in support of human rights and freedom of expression for this must-see event of the final weekend of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe!
Joining Deborah Frances-White at the Edinburgh Playhouse are guests including Rachel Parris, Nish Kumar, Phoebe Robinson from HBO’s 2 Dope Queens, Sindhu Vee, Desiree Burch, Rosie Jones, Steve Ali and Hollie McNish, Sophie Duker, Jessica Fostekew. Music and comedy will be supplied by the Jess Robinson and Grace Petrie.
The Amnesty Scotland office are particularly excited that Derry Girls stars Nicola Coughlan, Saoirse-Monica Jackson and Siobhan McSweeney will be performing at the show. Nicola and Siobhan helped us make history last month through their support for our campaign to decriminalise abortion in Northern Ireland and even joined on us on a protest march to Westminster.
We are also thrilled that human rights activist and original Glasgow Girl Amal Azzudin joins us to complete this incredible group of stars and activists joining together in support of human rights.
More than forty years since Amnesty’s first ever Secret Policeman’s event, the newly-revamped 2019 Secret Policeman’s Tour is showcasing a host of comedians, musicians, actors, activists and inspiring speakers who have come together for three electrifying nights of comedy, music and discussion, all in support of human rights.
The Secret Policeman’s Tour kicked off on Wednesday 5 June at London’s Hackney Empire. Listen to the London show here.
We hope to see you there!
