A taste of Midsummer


As the National Theatre of Scotland's production of Midsummer opened last weekend, we want to share with you a little teaser of the show. Watch the video below, where Bob and Helena sing about dealing with a hangover one morning in Edinburgh, just off the Leith Walk...

Also the reviews start to come in! The 5-star review in The Guardian describes Midsummer as a great pick-me-up show and praises Gordon McIntryre's "wonderfully tipsy songs" - read the full review here and take a look at the photo gallery below.

Make sure to catch this streetwise rom-com at The Hub until 26 August!
