We always make the trip to Duddingston to see Theatre Alba at the Fringe and it is always worth it. This year is no exception! Magical scottish language, faeries, wild hills fired with faery light are the back drop for this story of a troubled minister haunted by his beautiful first wife. We loved it. The performers were strong, the words were exquisite and painted wonderful pictures. The backdrop of the gardens and the churchyard are evocative and powerful. Don't miss it. But be prepared with layers of clothing, midge cream and wet weather protection! Still worth it!!
Thanks for this lovely review!
