Eight opened to critical acclaim at the Edinburgh festival and enjoyed a sell-out run. It went on to win three of the top prizes at the festival.

A series of monologues, Eight, offers the audience to choose which four will be performed each evening, thus meaning that the show is constantly evolving.
