Kind Words Spoken

“Roseanna Purcell and Aidan Crowe deliver raucously... The lost weekend has been done before a million times. But when it’s good, it’s really good. And Midsummer is really good” Sunday Independent 

"An unorthodox love story which would be difficult not to enjoy.” No More Workhorse 

"Insatiably dynamic chemistry... Stunning vocals, engaging performances, and fantastic stage presence. ‘Midsummer’ is a story which begins in a place we can all relate to, and ends with a story that we all aspire to live." Meg.ie

"...wonderfully done... directed with a great sense of pace and rhythm" Dublin City FM

A midsummer weekend in Edinburgh.

It’s raining.

Bob is a failing car salesman on the fringes of the city’s underworld. Helena is a high-powered divorce lawyer with a taste for other people’s husbands. She is totally out of his league; he is not her usual type at all. They absolutely should not sleep together…

Which is, of course, why they do.

Midsummer is a musical tour through Edinburgh; a great lost weekend of bridge-burning, car chases, wedding bust-ups, bondage miscalculations, midnight trysts and self-loathing hangovers.

A collaboration between David Greig and singer-songwriter Gordon McIntyre, brought to Project by the same team as the 2016 hit This Lime Tree Bower.
