Preview 'The Idiot at the Wall'

Last night was a wonderful preview of 'The Idiot at the Wall', and we've gotten so much great feedback already - thank you. We did battle with the Beltane Drummers who were downstairs....congratulations to the cast and musicians Murdo Turner and Lucy Macrae who stayed in the play and kept telling the story - it was great to overcome the obstacle together! Bring on tonight! Pictures coming soon!
