A wild ride of love, laughs, and lost weekends
One Midsummer night in Edinburgh, two ill-matched thirty-somethings – a high-powered, hard-drinking lawyer called Helena, who’s stuck in a dead-end affair with a married man, and a small-time crook called Bob – collide with one another for one short night of wild abandon. It’s an unlikely coupling as both are all too aware, but it’s Midsummer and anything can happen…
Penned by award-winning playwright, David Grieg, and composed by songwriter, Gordon McIntyre, Midsummer is a rose-tinted musical rom-com, a fast-paced, funny look at love, life, and the ache of aging.
The Mercury’s creative director Ryan McBryde (Baskerville, The Comedy of Errors) will direct this riotously funny, touchingly romantic 90-minute tour d’amour in all its drunken, horny, heartfelt glory.
