Full steam ahead for play about Loco Works
Rehearsals have begun on a play about the Inverurie Loco Works.
It has been 50 years since the depot – described as the “heart” of the town – closed its doors.
End Of The Line, created by the Mitchell School of Drama in collaboration with the Garioch Heritage Centre, will offer an insight into life in the works.
It has been set in the loco works’ carriage and wagon repair shop.
And the cast who make up the Loco Boys and Tait’s Quines – the latter were employed at the Inverurie Paper Mill – this week got to see inside the historical building in which their play will be staged.
Rhona Mitchell said:
“Rehearsals are now well under way and we’re all very excited to see audience reaction to our event.
“It’s so different doing a piece that uses a whole building but we were in the Garioch Heritage Centre last Sunday and feel it’s really coming alive in the space. Tickets are still available but selling fast.”
End Of The Line will show five times between December 7 and 9.
