‘We seek him here, we seek him there…’
I’m delighted to announce that I have secured financing for three semi-staged performances of my adaptation of The Scarlet Pimpernel in May next year. These will be at:
Adelaide Hall, Bath Street, Glasgow – 7.30pm Friday 3 May
Broompark Centre, Denny near Falkirk – 7.30pm Saturday 4 May
Roxy Upstairs, Roxburgh Place, Edinburgh- 7.30pm Sunday 5 May
Booking information will be available in due course and posted here and on our website Pimpernel Productions Ltd.
This will be an abridged – one hour twenty minute – version of the play, no lighting or sets etc. but the actors will be fully rehearsed – no scripts. I hope that this showcase will attract further funding so we can produce the full production and take it on tour.
We will be holding auditions in January.
I’d like to thank everyone who has contributed in order to make this happen, I really appreciate your help.
I understand that there are at least two television series based on The Scarlet Pimpernel in development so it will be wonderful to be able to share my take on the story and characters with you all.
If I could ask you to all sign up for easyfundraising if you haven’t already – money raised will go towards making the production even better and it won’t cost you a penny.
