Our younger actors in Love’s Labour’s Lost

A Midsummer Night’s Dream (2020)

Directed by Tom Hudson

  • Promenade performance at Traquair House
  • Wednesday 27th May – Saturday 30th May
  • Wednesday 3rd June – Saturday 6th June
  • 7.30pm start each evening

We have just completed a successful, if somewhat damp, production of Love’s Labour’s Lost. Thank you to all the audience who turned up in rain and shine. Also thanks to our fantastic cast and crew for a great show, despite the elements.

2020 is our 25th year and Tom Hudson will return as director, to steer us through the play we first performed in 1995.


Please note that our outdoor promenade performances are in the grounds of Traquair House. The performances take place whatever the weather, so come prepared with suitable clothing and footwear. Scenes move around the grounds on paths and grass, which can be muddy, and if you have any mobility issues please email us. Our plays begin at 7.30 promptly, so make sure you have time to park your car and walk to the start of our plays.
