Edinburgh's Playhouse evacuated 25 minutes into performance of 'cursed' show

Edinburgh’s Playhouse theatre was evacuated just 25 minutes into a performance which had been cancelled and rescheduled twice.

It is understood a fire alarm disrupted the sold-out Chris and Rosie Ramsey Shagged, Married, Annoyed show on Sunday. One theatregoer joked the show had clearly been “cursed”.

The audience were left to stand outside before being later let back in so the show could continue.
