“It’s midsummer. It’s raining. And there’s these two people having sex. They’ve only just met.” Thus begins a whirlwind weekend of revelry, romance, and self-discovery set along the magical backdrop of Edinburgh. Upscale lawyer, Helena, and petty conman, Bob, are worlds apart, but their respective midlife crises create a deep and surprising connection. Playwright David Greig and composer Gordon McIntyre pair up to deliver that rarest of beasts, a romantic comedy with a good head on its shoulders as well as a huge heart at its centre. Greig’s story and McIntyre’s songs offer the thrilling possibility that we can take our lives in hand and reinvent ourselves. Or, as the machine in the Edinburgh Castle car park puts it: “CHANGE IS POSSIBLE”.
Run Time: approx. 90 minutes.
There will be a 10 minute intermission.
