JIM CLARK THE MUSICAL
Book and lyrics by Alex Watson. Music by Mike Hardy
Duns Volunteer Hall
The new musical about World Champion racing driver and Berwickshire sheep farmer, Jim Clark, is back, following a sell-out season last year:
Torn between his desire to race and his own self-doubt, his parents' disapproval and his fear of danger, Jim makes an, at times, reluctant entry into the world of motorsport, but a spectacular career awaits as the Scotsman sets motor-racing records, some of which remain unbeaten today.

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.
