Buckie has been selected as the unlikely venue for an award-winning actress and a television and theatre star to stage a critically acclaimed comedy play.
Liverpool-based pair Lynne Fitzgerald, whose most recent television appearance was co-starring in ‘The Domino Effect’, has teamed up with former Brookside, Holby City and Last of the Summer Wine actor Louis Emerick to take to the stage at the Highfield Hall in Buckie High School.
The pair will present a production of ‘Two’, a Jim Cartwright comedy set in a northern pub in the 1980’s and described as “a wonderfully observed character study of a traditional pub, it’s eccentric customers and its warring landlord and landlady.”
When the duo performed the play in their native Liverpool it brought the house down – with Globe critic Peter Grant commenting: “Louis and Lynn will have you laughing and sighing, shaking your head and crying such is their take on people just like you and me.
“They will leave you open mouthed at their chameleon-like talents and their outstanding performances.”
Staging the production in Moray has not been an easy task for the Liverpool pair, Lynne saying: “You can imagine that based so far south of the venue it’s not the easiest job for us to promote this production – but we are delighted to be coming to Buckie and are very much looking forward to appearing at the Highfield Hall.”
‘Two’ will run at the Highfield Hall on West Cathcart Street from June 25 to June 28 with performances starting at 7pm – there will also be matinee performances on the Friday and Saturday at 2pm.
Tickets – priced at just £10 – can be booked by calling Buckie Community High School on 01542 832605.
