Perhilion Theatre Co.

Physical comedy’s answer to the discovery channel

Perhilion Theatre Company was set up in 2002 by Alasdair Satchel to produce One Man Rant at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

The company has since toured to audiences in Scotland, the Czech Republic at the Prague Fringe, the Edinburgh Festival for several years in a row, London, Newcastle, the Brighton Fringe and now to Hong Kong.

  • The Scotsman 5 star hit One Man Rant employed the skills of Alasdair Satchel as writer, director and performer and Rachael Rayment as dramaturg and co-director.
    Original music was commissioned from the Marcia Blaine School for Girls.

  • Two Man Rumble, Perhilion’s acclaimed second outing on to the world's stages was once again written, directed and performed by Alasdair Satchel, firstly with the addition of Michale Blyth on stage and Dramaturgical duties,
    and then, latterly, Alasdair Macrae. Perhilion once again collaborated with The Marcia Blaine School for Girls to provide the unique soundscape for the production.

Trademarks of the Perhilion style are a comic fusion of physicality, music, the spoken word, and an unerring sense of the poetically vulgar.

  • Luggage, Perhilion’s third project to date, explores the nature of modern day relationships. Employing four actors, large scale puppetry, and original music from the Marcia Blaine School For Girls, it was written and directed by Alasdair Satchel. Luggage, a work in progress, was developed thanks to the Playwrights Studio Scotland.

  • With a wealth of diverse training behind them Perhilion Theatre Company offer workshops on the processes behind the creation of their shows.

  • Perhilion Theatre Company is a member of HITN, the Highlands & Islands Theatre Network.
