Reform Theatre presents

Midsummer

Fri 17 Apr, 7:30pm at Red Brick Auditorium

Tickets: £15 (£13 concessions) (Ticket price includes a £1 Theatre Support Fee)

It’s midsummer. It’s raining. Two thirty some things are sitting in a bar waiting for something to turn up.

Bob is a failing car salesman on the fringes of the underworld. Helena is a high-powered divorce lawyer with a taste for other people’s husbands. She’s out of his league, and he’s not her type. But with a Tesco’s bag full of cash, they embark on a lost weekend of bridge-burning, car chases, wedding bust-ups, midnight trysts and hung over self-loathing.

A collaboration between playwright David Greig and singer-songwriter Gordon McIntyre, Midsummer opened at the Traverse Theatre in October 2008 and was revived for an international tour in the summer of 2009.

★★★★★ “a beautiful, mesmerising piece of storytelling that makes you fall in love with the show all over again” – British Theatre

★★★★ – The Herald

★★★★ “Greig’s inventive, lively writing provides a strong foundation for an engaging cast” – Broadway Baby
