WHAT’S ON OCTOBER: ANNVILLE: A POWERFUL AND HEARTBREAKING TRUE VICTORIAN TRAGEDY IN SCOTS at CITZ
In November 1883 one of Scotland’s greatest untold tragedies reached its bloody conclusion in Annville House in Kirkfieldbank just outside Lanark. Glasgow University student Willie Brown, sick with Milk Fever, returns to Annville House to recuperate. His cousin, music teacher Charlotte, cares for him as he struggles to recover. As winter descends on the valley tempers and jealousies crack and shatter like ice on the Clyde.
The Citizens Theatre reading will be followed by a post-show discussion about the Scots language of the play and women’s rights and duties in nineteenth century Scotland; hosted by the playwright, novelist and director with guests Professor Kirstie Blair and Doctor Michael Dempster.
Based on the novel THE FLOURISH by Heather Spears
Directed by Amanda Gaughan
