Written and Performed by Stephanie Ridings
Directed by Sarah Meadows

A mysterious figure haunts an untamed Scottish island. No one is immune to the heightened campaign of fear and terror she pours onto those who cross her path. But what does that fear actually feel like and how did wanting to create a scary ghost story mean I ended up 60 meters underground in a watery cave? 
The Fear of Fear wrestles with the emotion to try and understand what makes us afraid and why it doesn’t always have to be a bad thing.

Look out for free VR activity before and after the show. 

The Fear of Fear is brought to you by an award-winning team: Ridings last solo show was winner of Arts Award Voice: Pick of the Fringe.  Previous Artist-Producer Collaboration won The Peter Brook / Mark Marvin Award.
