Older versions of the same characters:
It’s midsummer weekend in Edinburgh. It’s raining. Two thirtysomethings are sitting in a New Town bar waiting for something to turn up. First staged in 2008 before touring internationally to phenomenal acclaim, Midsummer is a streetwise romcom that turns a midlife crisis into a dance of freedom and proves that it’s never too late for any of us to change. Bob is a failing car salesman on the fringes of Edinburgh’s underworld. Helena is a high-powered divorce lawyer with a taste for other people’s husbands. She’s out of his league, and he’s not her type. But with a Tesco’s bag full of cash, they embark on a lost weekend of bridge-burning, car chases, wedding bust-ups, midnight trysts and hungover self-loathing.
Edinburgh-born David Greig is one of Britain’s most respected and admired playwrights, as well as Artistic Director of the city’s Royal Lyceum Theatre. Edinburgh-based Gordon McIntyre is a founding member of Scottish indie band Ballboy.
