Gabriel Quigley wins Edinburgh Festival Award

Huge congratulations to Gabriel Quigley on winning another Edinburgh Festival Award in addition to previous years. Gabriel has the lead role of Scotland’s Foreign Minister in ‘Spoiling’ at the Traverse Theatre from 30th July-24th August.

Gabriel QuigleyIn front of the world’s media, Scotland’s Foreign Minister will shortly deliver a keynote speech outlining the newly-independent nation’s relationship with the former UK. But there’s a problem. She’s refusing to speak the words she’s been given.

There’s something else she wants to say.

At odds with her Party, and pursued by a harassed Party worker, she has a decision to make; toe the line or take back control.

This timely piece, directed by award-winning Traverse Artistic Director Orla O’Loughlin, moves effortlessly from heartfelt political satire to vivid, soaring lyricism.

Never has an iron fist within a velvet glove delivered such a punch.
