North actor to feature in Fringe drama
The controversial play Casanova Dreaming is to feature at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe – with an Inverness actor in one of the key roles.
Creighton King has been handed the role of Chevalier de Seingalt in the drama.
The actor, who has previously appeared at the Inverness Musical Theatre, is basking in the opportunity to play one of history’s most interesting and intriguing characters.
Mr King said: “I have spent the last 18 months developing my acting skills, training at Bristol Old Vic theatre school, Acting Out in Edinburgh, and Stage Combat Scotland.
“To be able to bring
“Martin has created an amazing work”
those skills into this new work at the biggest drama festival in the world, is a dream come true.”
The drama has been written by Mar tin Foreman, with the Edinburgh-based writer and director winning this year’s Pitlochry Festival Theatre Short Play Award.
Mr King added: “With Casanova Dreaming, Martin has created an amazing work that really gets under the skin of the characters and challenges how you may think of love, sex and power not just in the 18th Century but today as well.
“It reaches across the years to reveal the human element – or human beneath the mask – and has great relevance for us in the 21st Century as our society struggles with revaluating the relations between men and women.”
The first viewing of the play is to take place on August 8 at theSpace on Niddry Street, Edinburgh.
