CHEESE, wine, artisan bread and the meaning of life are on the menu at the RST.

Bristol based theatre makers Stand + Stare bring their Edinburgh Fringe sell-out show, The Guild of Cheesemakers, a cheese and wine tasting evening with a fictional narrative, to the Swan Room from December 11 to 15.

It is the evening of The Guild of Cheesemakers’ Annual Tasting and a panel of culinary experts have gathered to guide the guests of the Guild on a gastronomic journey. The scene is set with a selection of artisan cheeses, wines and breads presented for digestion and discussion.

But among the fine fare on offer is a cheese like no other, a cheese which some believe has mystical powers - the mysterious 198th cheese in The Book of Curds. Gradually, the secrets of the 198th are uncovered, leading all who sample it to question the very essence of life and to make a collective decision that could alter humanity forever.

Suitable for ages 18 plus, tickets priced £20 are available from the box office via or calling 0844 800 1110.
