The Empty Seat: Please Consider Donating

In light of current Government restrictions and with the priority of public health in mind, we have made the difficult decision to suspend our operation at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and cease sales for Kiri Pritchard-McLean: Empathy Pains. This poses a significant challenge not only to Pleasance but also Live Nation in association with PBJ Management, who produce Kiri Pritchard-McLean.

We would welcome any support you are able to provide by donating below. Your donation will be shared between Live Nation in associaton with PBJ Management and the Pleasance Theatre Trust, helping us both get through these tough times and back to the stage. We will return to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe to thrill, amaze, provoke and entertain as soon as we're able to, even if it may have to be in 2021. We look forward to welcoming you then. Thank you.

Any donation value is welcome, please feel free to edit the £5.00 default shown above.


Important information:

This show contains strong language.

Multi award winning comedian Kiri Pritchard-McLean (Have I Got News for You, Live at the Apollo, 8 out of 10 Cats, Frankie Boyle's New World Order) is back with her fourth full length show. Previous shows have seen her tackle structural racism, sexism, child grooming, adoption and emotional abuse so what seemingly unfunny subject has she picked to turn into laughs this year? Chernobyl? The shrinking size of creme eggs? No, empathy. Which sounds fine actually but maybe not the way Kiri tackles it.

★★★★★ (The Independent)

"An impressive comic, making powerhouse standup from the thorniest of subjects" (The Guardian)

2 for 1 through Pleasance available Mon 10th & Tues 11th - applied automatically on full price tickets.
