    ” The Worlds Wonder ” by Alexander Reid

    Something out of the ordinary

    adult-leisure-actingclasses-edinburghA comedy on medieval Scots magician Michael Scot, Alexander Reid’s play is something out of the ordinary.

    With dialogue that is witty, satirical and often deep, this piece offers a wonderful Scots voice, performed by Theatre Alba’s Leisure Group, with its heady mix of teachers, solicitors et al, who tackle this fantastical Scots classic with their usual verve and commitment.
