THREE self-styled vigilantes decide to seek revenge for anyone who has been the victim of a brutal crime.

But in their zeal to take an eye for an eye, their long standing friendships come under increasing pressure.

As the cracks begin to show and old demons come back to haunt them, the dynamic of the three slowly breaks down, leaving this once tight group questioning their actions.

Just how far can they take their ideals? And having committed their acts of vengeance, can anything ever be the same again?

Jack Elliot, Rory Speed, Kate Foley-Scott and Rosie Milne star in Jack Elliot’s hard-hitting dark play, Death is the New Porn, at the Space on North Bridge, this Fringe.

The piece is staged by Blazing Hyena Theatre Company in association with New Celts Productions, a collective of new Scottish talent who all trained and graduated from Edinburgh Napier and Queen Margaret Universities.

A showcase then, this production represents the culmination of that training and will showcase the talent of emerging young local professional actors as well as exciting new writer, Jack Elliot.

Death is the New Porn, theSPACE on North Bridge, North Bridge, until 23 August 6.45pm, £8, 0131-226 000
