Perth Theatre at Horsecross Arts presents
House of Mirth’s production of
Wednesday 8th May 8pm
£12/£10/£5 U26s

There’s two rules. First, the person you choose must be dead. And second, you have to be dressed up to get in.

It’s Thursday night in the Prince Arthur and their latest theme night is in full swing. Landlady Liz is run off her feet, whilst husband Barry struggles to get into his new costume. Elsewhere in London, a young woman from Edinburgh steps off a train, determined to make her dreams a reality.

Fast-paced and irreverent, Marie is a darkly comic new play inspired by the life of Mary Queen of Scots, but given a distinctly modern twist!

Created by Sarah MacGillivray
Directed by Phil Bartlett

… wonderfully mesmerising and darkly comic one-woman show... a joy to watch from start to finish'


"... Marie, a drama which, although not from the stable of A Play, a Pie and a Pint, very well might have been (not least because it is set largely in a pub). Written by Sarah MacGillivray and Phil Bartlett, the piece is a modest, witty, sometimes touching monodrama loosely based on the life of Mary Queen of Scots.

MacGillivray plays a young Scottish woman who arrives in latter day London to conquer, not the crown, but the West End stage and the fame-giving screen. She ends up working in a struggling boozer in which “history night” (in which punters dress and perform as dead historical figures) is proving to be good for business. Playing not only Marie, but also publicans Liz and Barry, MacGillivray gives a performance of, by turns, comic caricature, engaging interior monologue and, ultimately, keen portrayal of mental distress. Too small in scale, perhaps, to truly express all of its themes, it is, nevertheless, a strong performance of an intriguing little play."  MARK BROWN: THE HERALD
