First produced by A Play, A Pie and A Pint at Oran Mor, Glasgow, and now from Assembly on the Edinburgh Fringe - comedy and tragedy collide in Federer versus Murray, a powerful new play about bereavement and war on three levels: the private war between a couple in a long-term marriage, the public war of rivalry within sport, and political war between nations.

A beautiful study of human strength and fragility told through the lives of two very ordinary people, this moving and genuinely funny play unfolds as the (Switzerland versus Scotland) Wimbledon Tennis Semi-Final plays out on television. Federer versus Murray was described by one approving Edinburgh critic last year as 'a Virginia Woolf for the Scottish working class' and Michael Coveney in The Independent praised the two great performers for their 'stealth and restraint'.

Federer versus Murray features live music performed by saxophonist Ben Bryden - a 'Young Scottish Jazz Musician of the Year 2010' finalist, and winner of the Edinburgh Jazz Festival Jam Competition.



FEDERER VERSUS MURRAY is presented as part of Scotland Week 2012.
