Midsummer in New York City, Clurman Theatre
One of the Traverse's best-loved plays, Midsummer [a play
with songs] is making its New York premiere in January,
starting the Traverse 50th anniversary celebrations with a
It's midsummer's weekend in Edinburgh. It's raining. Two
thirtysomethings are sitting in a New Town bar waiting for
something to turn up.
Midsummer [a play with songs] is the story of Bob and
Helena and a great lost weekend of bridge burning, car chases,
wedding bust-ups, bondage miscalculations, midnight trysts and
horrible hungover self-loathing misery.
Featuring Cora Bissett and Matthew Pidgeon as the ill-advised
love match, Midsummer [a play with songs] is a quirky,
charming love story by one of Scotland's leading playwrights, David
Greig, and top Edinburgh singer/songwriter, Gordon McIntyre of the
indie-folk band Ballboy.
Midsummer [a play with songs] was the hit of the 2009
Edinburgh Festival and has gone on to play sell-out tours to
Canada, Washington DC and Australia. It is now making its New York
premiere, appearing at the Clurman Theatre as the winner of the
Carol Tambor Best of Edinburgh Award.
