Full steam ahead for play about Loco Works

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - NEWS -

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.
