Chloe Daykin’s Turnip heads for Edinburgh

Posted by

Writer, book artist, designer and teacher Chloe Daykin will be spending her Valentine’s Day with an ‘enormous turnip’ in Edinburgh. Don’t worry, it’s a better Valentine than it sounds. Chloe’s play, Ruth & Doug’s Enormous Turnip, has been selected by Traverse Theatre in Edinburgh to be part of their Words Words Words Valentine’s scratch night extravaganza.

Although there was strong competition from other submissions this year, Ruth & Doug’s Enormous Turnip was selected by the judges, who described it as ‘compelling’. The play will be staged at the Traverse Theatre on Friday 14 February. For more information, see
