Monumental Meigle is a free walking play that will use local stories, anecdotes and myths about Meigle and the surrounding area, gathered from the community and other sources, and re-told and shaped for the modern-day by writer, director and theatre maker Phil Baarda.
The play, which is part of the Cateran Ecomuseum‘s innovative Museum of Rapid Transition programme, will see professional actors Innes Anderson and Benjamin L Wray perform alongside local actors and musicians.
Join us for these rehearsal days where you will be able to hone your craft with Innes and Benjamin before performing a role in the walking play.
The performances, which take place on Saturday, August 12th, and Sunday, August 13th, both at 2pm, will be script-in-hand so there’s no need to learn too many lines!
The performance will be about one and half to two hours long, including walking between sites. In order to take part, our cast must be able to attend both rehearsal days and both performances. In the event of wet weather, the play will be performed in the Kinloch Memorial Hall.
Refreshments will be provided during both rehearsal days. In order to help us with numbers, we would appreciate it if you could confirm your attendance by booking a place HERE. Please email [email protected] in advance to advise of any dietary requirements.
This event is being delivered by the Cateran Ecomuseum with the support of Inspiring Scotland and the Scottish Government’s Rural and Island Communities Ideas into Action (RICIA) Fund, Paths for All Smarter Choices Smarter Places programme, and the National Lottery Heritage Fund thanks to National Lottery players.
