Outlying Islands at Fullarton Theatre

From Liz Smith

Tickets are selling fast for Firebrand’s autumn touring production Outlying Islands, sponsored by Born in the Borders and Peter Scott, which comes to Castle Douglas' Fullarton Theatre on the 11th October. The cast of David Greig’s wonderful play features Martin Richardson and Crawford Logan, both of whom come direct to the Scottish Borders from performing in hit shows in London’s West End.

Crawford, last seen in Scotland in Firebrand’s award-winning production of Iron, has been playing the lead role in the world famous spine-tingler The Woman in Black, and Martin has just been directed by Sir Trevor Nunn (Les Miserables, Cats) in Noel Coward’s Relative Values, alongside celebrity Borders resident Rory Bremner.

Both actors are delighted to be exchanging the bright lights for rehearsal in a more rural environment, especially as David Greig’s award-winning play takes place on a remote Hebridean island. Martin, who plays a young Cambridge naturalist, is a keen amateur photographer and has been doing his research by studying the wildlife not only in the Borders but on the uninhabited island of Roan off the north coast town of Tongue where his family have a cottage. And Crawford is relishing the opportunity to play two different characters in what he describes as “another great contemporary Scottish play revived by the enterprising Firebrand team. It’s poetic, funny, emotional and sensual, with some very surprising twists; all the ingredients for a riveting night in the theatre.”

Tickets for The Fullarton are available online via their website here. The Scottish tour of Outlying Islands, will also visit Scottish Borders venues in Galashiels, Peebles and Kelso continuing to Dumfries and Galloway, Ayrshire, Dundee, Birnam, Stirling, Edinburgh and Glasgow.
