A the­atre group has in­stalled its own post­boxes around Dum­fries to help de­liver spe­cial mes­sages dur­ing its next per­for­mance.

Bun­bury Ban­ter The­atre Com­pany has post­boxes in place in five spots - and mem­bers are call­ing on the pub­lic to sub­mit thank you let­ters.

The the­atre com­pany is stag­ing its up­com­ing per­for­mance of ‘Words Live’ over two days at the end of the month and is keen for Dum­fries res­i­dents to play their part by writ­ing let­ters.

The Words Live show will be a read­ing of thank you let­ters - some more than 200 years old - col­lated from an ar­chive at the Dum­fries Mu­seum.

Andy Edwards, project co-or­di­na­tor and play­wright with Bun­bury Ban­ter The­atre Com­pany, said: “To ex­pand our ar­chive and give the work a mod­ern per­spec­tive we are putting up post­boxes around Dum­fries and fur­ther afield, invit­ing lo­cal res­i­dents to sub­mit their thank you let­ters both old and new.

“We’re re­ally keen to read about what peo­ple are grate­ful for. Dur­ing these shows, we will share these thank you let­ters to­gether.

“It’ll be a heart­warm­ing, in­clu­sive and up­lift­ing event.”

Bun­bury Ban­ter The­atre Com­pany has placed post­boxes at the fol­low­ing Dum­fries and Gal­loway lo­ca­tions: The Stove Net­work in the High Street; The The­atre Royal; Ewart Li­brary; Tesco su­per­store, and the CatS­trand arts cen­tre in Cas­tle Dou­glas.

Words Live will be staged on Au­gust 23 at The Stove Net­work and Au­gust 24 at CatS­trand arts cen­tre.
