Rehearsal Room Number 18

4 - 5 October 2012
Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh

Stellar Quines in partnership with Luminate, Scotland’s creative aging festival, present a rehearsed reading of Liz Lochead’s humorous and poignant Mortal Memories.

The indomitable Nettie Abernethy, widow of the local minister and with a passion for the work of Robert Burns, was a leading light of the Women’s Guild Burns Suppers in the 1970s.  Nearly 40 years later she builds an unlikely friendship in her sheltered housing community, as they prepare to celebrate Burns night and share some secrets and memories from the past.

Liz Lochead will take part in a post show discussion following both performances. The performance on Friday 5 October will be BSL interpreted. To book tickets call the Traverse Theatre’s box office on 0131 228 1404 or buy online via www.traverse.co.uk
