Borders Pub Theatre

Join us for an evening of new writing in the Scottish Borders.

Borders Pub Theatre is an exciting new venture to promote and encourage new writing in the Scottish Borders. The first event 'In the Beginning' will take place at The County Hotel, Selkirk on Saturday 23 March.

Featuring plays by local playwrights from Galashiels, Greenlaw, Hawick, Kelso, Carlops and Melrose, the evening of new writing will be inspired by the very apt theme 'In the Beginning'. The wildly different interpretations of this theme will be performed by local professional actors in a series of short plays:

Mozart & Salieri by Thomas Clark
A second-rate composer plots a terrible revenge against his god-gifted rival.

Secretly Edgy by award-winning playwright Jules Horne
A cooncillor's last-ditch mission to market the Borders

It's Pronounced Stow by Campbell Hutcheson
A Borders Railway passenger reacts to a train cancellation

Stop Procrastinating by Anita John
Carol is sorting socks the Marie Kondo way but who or what is she trying to avoid?

Form 4a Section Nothing by Emily Larner
Today is Gracey's Armageddon. She must defend her territory, claim victory and ride out in a blaze of glory (kind of).

The beginning of the end of the First World War by John McEwen
A married couple confront a time-warp

Say Aye Tae a Pie by Laura McIntyre
A 30 year friendship turns sour when the duo collude to hide a dark secret

Worth a Second Look by  Robert Sproul-Cran
Ula doesn't recognise the husband she despised after his appearance is changed by Witness Protection - and this time her reaction may be unexpected...

The plays will be semi-staged and directed by Caitlin Skinner, founder of The Village Pub Theatre, and local director Clare Prenton.

On top of all this - there will also be a raffle with lots of prizes, including cakes and plays!

Borders Pub Theatre has been founded by playwrights who were originally part of the Scottish Borders Playwriting Programme run by Playwrights' Studio, Scotland.
