After a great summer season, which featured work across our three platforms – Inside, Outside and Online, the Theatre is very excited to share it’s autumn/winter programme with you. .
There is a diverse selection of productions for you to enjoy; there are shows to make you laugh and entertain you, as well as thought-provoking work providing an opportunity to explore important issues and big ideas.
They begin with Shirley Valentine, a much-loved comedy by Willy Russell, which is being presented in association with An Tobar and Mull Theatre touring Mull and Iona in November. They then premiere Enough Of Him, a co-production with National Theatre of Scotland, in the Studio Theatre before it goes on a countrywide tour. This vital new play by May Sumbwanyambe, based on a true story, is an investigation into power and the inescapable challenges of navigating a world of brutality.
For their festive production, they are making J. M. Barrie’s classic magical story, Peter Pan and Wendy adapted by Janys Chambers in the main Auditorium. You can look forward to flying to Neverland and it will delight people of all ages with this specially commissioned new show for Pitlochry audiences.
As well as their productions, the Theatre’s literature festival, Winter Words, returns in February for in-person Inside events as well as continuing to engage audiences Online. Season Three of the Online Soundstage series has also been announced, produced in partnership with two leading touring companies, Stockroom Theatre Company and Firebrand Theatre Company, sharing Pitlochry Festival Theatre’s work even further afield with international audiences too. These will include three newly written podcasts about the multi-talented poet, teacher, novelist and nature writer Nan Shepherd, who was also the first women to appear on a Scottish bank note.
