What is in the name?

In a tale as wild as a zebra on the loose, our fearless head of Productions Dom, in his theater-directing days back in 2014, walked upon the Edinburgh streets.

Picture this: a dark night, a fateful encounter with a colleague, and BAM! Not just a mental revelation but a physical bump too. Why? Because, lo and behold, there was a zebra lurking in a nearby building!

As they peered through the window the zebra was still there, probably planning its great escape. As Dom moved on to directing film the memory of that striped surprise lived on. And thus, “The Zebra in the Window” was born. Because let’s face it, a zebra cameo is never just a one-time thing! 🦓✨
