An evening of eclectic, site-specific theatre inspired by the women’s stories held within the Portrait Gallery’s collection.

Stellar Quines has joined forces with the Scottish National Portrait Gallery to place five talented emerging artists working in Scottish theatre today into the gallery. Between them they have created a collection of short, site-specific performances that shine a light on the women that have inspired them and the stories behind their portraits.

Join Stellar Quines for a journey around the gallery to experience all of the ‘Untaught to Shine’ performances on Thursday 8 & Friday 9 May at 7.30pm. Alternatively look out for individual pop up performances between 2pm and 3pm on Friday 9 May.

For tickets for the evening performances can be purchased via Stellar Quines’ website



No tickets are required for the free pop up performances on the afternoon of Friday 9 May.
