The Fatal Misjudgement

By Carol Robson,

Elizabeth 1. She confides in her lifelong companion, Mary Seaton, as they realise that their refuge is no more than captivity and that her future will lie in the hands of the real power behind the English thrown...her nemesis William Cecil Lord Burleigh.

The King's Pin - A Ghost Story

By Craig Knight

Kings pin full title.jpg

In this bewitching two-hander by Craig Knight, we are drawn into the murky depths of Scottish history, with all its ambiguity and anguish.

This play will send a shiver up your spine!

The Battle of Flodden took place on September 9th, 1513.

Among the thousands of Scottish dead was the King himself, except rumours persisted of James IV surviving the carnage, thanks

to an unearthly gift bestowed in Linlithgow Chapel on the eve

of battle.

The sinister power of the King's Pin persists down the centuries, its capacity for magic, murder and revenge undiluted by time ...

THE MUSICAL

June 7-10

7.30pm

Duns Volunteer Hall

The new musical about World Champion racing driver and Berwickshire sheep farmer, Jim Clark, is back this summer, following a sell-out season last year.

Torn between his desire to race and self doubt, fear of danger and his parents' disapproval, Jim makes an, at times, reluctant entry into the world of motorsport, but a spectacular racing career, awaits as the Scotsman sets motor-racing records, some still unbeaten.

Col-Anne-06-RGB-For-Web-Use.jpg

Colonel Anne, a real-life heroine of the 1745 Jacobite Rising, defied her husband the Laird of Mackintosh and raised troops for Bonnie Prince Charlie. Her quick thinking saved the Prince's life at the Rout of Moy, while her warrior-lover Macgillivray died at the bloody battle of Culloden. Imprisoned by the Duke of Cumberland, she survived to tell the tale. A true story of passion, raw courage and female independence in a turbulent Scotland.
