I know you’re there. You’ve been there all this time. Watching.
Woman Walking by acclaimed Scottish playwright, Sylvia Dow, is inspired by the life of Nan Shepherd, and her love of the Cairngorms and the connection she had with the mountains.
Woman Walking is a beautifully poignant play imagining several interactions over a period of time between Cath, a modern woman carrying the guilt and trauma over the death of her mother, and Nan, long since deceased and brought back by Cath to help her find resolution through her dialogue with Nan and through the Cairngorms themselves in all their rough beauty, light and weather. Sylvia Dow’s play has both humour and pathos and brings themes of grief, resolution and the healing power of nature.

The winter production for the Barony Players will be The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde, directed by Sandy Queenan.
20th – 25th November 2023.
By Robert Louis Stevenson and adapted by Nick Lane. Doctor Henry Jekyll is a good man. Successful within his field and respected by his peers, he’s close to a neurological discovery that will change the face of medical science forever. However, his methods are less than ethical, and when a close friend and colleague threatens to expose and destroy his work, Jekyll is forced to experiment on himself, whereupon something goes very wrong… or very right. And suddenly Jekyll has a new friend, the brutal Edward Hyde. A thrilling adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s dark psychological fantasy, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll And Mr Hyde immerses you in the myth and mystery of 19th century London’s fog-bound streets where love, betrayal and murder lurk at every chilling twist and turn. Gripping, stylish and thought-provoking, this is unmissable theatre. Go on. Treat your dark side!

“Tell me it’s not true. Say it’s just a story…”
This is the non-musical play version of the hugely successful musical. It tells of twin brothers and what happens when their mother decides to have one of them adopted. Their contrasting upbringings and the hands fate deals them creates a fast-moving, perceptive and ultimately tragic story.
“Amazing show – congratulations to all”
“Absolutely outstanding! We can’t wait until the next production and have bought a family membership . Well done to all involved”
“Loved it tonight. Well done cast and crew. The production was perfect. You know the audience is captured when you hear the laughter and tears. The accents too. Transported us to Liverpool”
“Superbly done as always. The setting was fantastic as usual – you have great designer(s) and crafts people. The acting was brilliant – great casting! Well done to all!”
“An amazing performance. It fact it was so good I told my husband and sons to book tickets for themselves tonight!”
