Am­a­teur dra­matic en­thu­si­asts give BRAW per­for­mance

Blairgowrie Advertiser - - THE WEEKEND TICKET -

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.
