Pitlochry Festival Theatre and Royal Lyceum Edinburgh have today released production images for the world premiere of Peter Arnott’s new play Group Portrait in a Summer Landscape.
The images feature cast members John Michie (Rennie); Sally Reid (Emma); Nalini Chetty (Jitka); Benny Young (Moon); Deirdre Davis (Edie); Matthew Trevannion (Charlie); Keith Macpherson (Frank); Patricia Panther (Kath) and Robbie Scott (Will).
Set in a Perthshire country house during the Scottish Independence referendum of 2014, Group Portrait in a Summer Landscape revolves around retired academic and political heavyweight George Rennie, and his fractured family and former students, coming together for a dramatic reckoning. There are secrets to be exposed and truths to be told.
Group Portrait in a Summer Landscape is an exploration of a way of life that is coming to its end, a family struggling to connect in the wake of political pain, the experience of grief, and the beginnings, and endings of great love affairs.
Directed by Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh’s Artistic Director David Greig, Group Portrait in a Summer Landscape will have its world première at Pitlochry Festival Theatre from 30 August to 28 September and then transfer to the Royal Lyceum from 4 to 14 October.
