Midsummer (a play with songs)

Project Arts Centre, Wednesday 22nd May - Saturday 8th June 2019

A midsummer weekend in Edinburgh.

It’s raining.

Bob is a failing car salesman on the fringes of the city’s underworld. Helena is a high-powered divorce lawyer with a taste for other people’s husbands. She is totally out of his league; he is not her usual type at all. They absolutely should not sleep together…

Which is, of course, why they do.

Midsummer is a musical tour through Edinburgh; a great lost weekend of bridge-burning, car chases, wedding bust-ups, bondage miscalculations, midnight trysts and self-loathing hangovers.

A collaboration between David Greig and singer-songwriter Gordon McIntyre, brought to Project by the same team as the 2016 hit This Lime Tree Bower.
