My wife, Anne, acts with the Edinburgh People’s Theatre, an amateur company founded in 1943 and still going strong. She is performing in the festival fringe show Stooshie at the Store.
The blurb is:
It's 1959 and Edinburgh is celebrating the centenary year of St Cuthbert's Co-operative Association. Excitement mounts as the 'Divvie' (money) is due to be handed out to the members next week, followed by the annual Mannequin Parade at the Central Methodist Halls the week after.
But what happens when some of the 'Divvie' money goes missing and the principal mannequin is knocked down by a car? And who is the mysterious wee Shuggie Wright?
Saturday 5th (Gala Premiere) - Saturday 19th August 2006 at 7.45 pm (not Sundays).
Venue 17, St Peter's, Lutton Place
Ticket Prices: £8.00 & £7.00 (concession)
It’s a comedy, the acting is good, and people actually laughed (a lot) in the private test audience at the final dress rehearsal. So if you’re in Edinburgh for the festival, it’s recommended. Tonight’s show (Saturday 5th) is sold out.
