Marie - A comic new play about Mary Queen of Scots

Sarah MacGillivray, the Winner of the Club’s 2017 Bright Spark Theatre Award will give a special performance of Marie for Members and guests on Saturday 23 September at 6.30pm in the Clubroom. The performance lasts one hour.  After the performance Sarah and her co-creator Philip Bartlett will be available to talk to Members.  The audience will be asked for a donation (suggested minimum: £6.00).
Fast-paced and irreverent, “Marie” is a darkly comic play inspired by the life of Mary Queen of Scots, but given a distinctly modern twist.  There are two rules: first, the person you choose must be dead. And second, you have to be dressed up to get in.  It’s Thursday night in the “Prince Arthur” and their latest theme night is in full swing. Landlady Liz is run off her feet, whilst husband Barry struggles to get into his new costume. Elsewhere in London, a young woman from Edinburgh steps off a train, determined to make her dreams a reality.              Audience will be asked for a donation (suggested minimum £6).
