The craggy black turrets of Bedlam Theatre are as distinctive a feature of the central Edinburgh skyline as the Royal Mile clocktower. An entirely student-run operation, this endearingly ramshackle building hosts some seriously classy drama, with performances greedily gobbling up star-streaked reviews and award-nominations during Festival time. Also home to Bedlam's in-house 'Fat Cat' café, a chilled space wallpapered in old theatre memorabilia, with mismatched wooden tables and squishy armchairs in which to sample some of the best home-baking in town... and there's a couple of bookcases stuffed with lovingly-thumbed classics and retro boardgames to enjoy at interval time. Perfect.
