Lochaber’s only the­atre com­pany puts on Fringe event

The Oban Times - - Leisure -

High­lands. Hoga­many. Three gen­er­a­tions of men. The whisky should prob­a­bly have stayed in the cup­board.

Bright Pro­duc­tions are Lochaber’s only the­atre com­pany and they are now tak­ing their new play The Re­cov­ery Ver­sion to the Ed­in­burgh Fringe but they had three lo­cal dates be­fore set­ting off.

They per­formed in Bal­lachul­ish Vil­lage Hall on July 29, Vic­tory Hall on July 31 and the Ben Ne­vis Dis­tillery on Au­gust 1.

There was a short post show talk where au­di­ences could chat with the cast and crew. And there was even be a nip of whisky.

Three pupils from Kin­lochleven High School joined them on this project.

Fiona Janzen, Holly Bald­win and James Ram­say shared the role of Jack, a 12-year- old boy, and will be part of the world’s big­gest arts fes­ti­val.

Other young peo­ple have been in­volved with the de­vel­op­ment of the play. S3 pupils have been test­ing and stag­ing script and se­nior pupils have been help­ing de­signer and teacher Graeme Martin to cre­ate the set.

The play is writ­ten by lo­cal play­wright Ilona Munro, and the mu­sic is by Paul Hornby-Bat­trick and Chaz Ste­wart.
