Amateur dramatic enthusiasts give BRAW performance
Amateur dramatic enthusiasts with the Blairgowrie Players were said to be delighted to take part in the area’s newest arts event.
It’s BRAW: Blairgowrie and Rattray Arts week took place across several east Perthshire venues from October 9-14.
As part of the event, the Players staged the group’s Murder Mystery, ‘The Curse of Willoughby Diamond’ at Cargill’s Bistro.
The more intimate setting was said to be effective as it meant the piece could be enjoyed by those who perhaps hadn’t seen it before.
In addition, members reprised ‘The Arrow’ by Lord Robert Mercer-Nairne in Blairgowrie Town Hall.
As well as depicting the public meetings held in the town when the Rattray Silver Arrow – regarded by many as a significant piece of local history – was put up for auction, the play also looks at what happened to the arrow after it was won for apparently the last time. The performance followed on from a similarly successful outing during the area’s recent BOOKMARK literary festival.
The Players also took part in workshops as part of BRAW.
Whodunnit? Three people guessed the culprit during the Players’ Murder Mystery
