The Dark Carnival: Unplugged is an informal, rousing music and theatre show: With songs, spoken word and a free (though not compulsory!) glass of whisky for everyone, it tells the story of newcomers to the afterlife who are surprised to discover that death is not actually the end.

Inspired by Weimar cabaret, danse macabre and classic songwriters of musical theatre such as Kurt Weill and Lionel Bart, the songs find themselves in a musical space somewhere in between Leonard Cohen and The Muppets. Come in, have a drink and join us for an intimate, celebratory and heart-warming night of storytelling and song.

aymond Mearns - Confessions of A Control Freak!

Nobody really wants to see a film or a play or read a book about a person who had a great life, was successful in their career and lucky in Love! And whilst everybody would love to have that life, it's not very compelling; in fact it's boring!

It's far more interesting to hear about somebody who has made a rip-roaring arse of themselves and mucked everything up!

Just another day in the life of Raymond Mearns - an argumentative, raging, judgemental, grammar nit-picker! He might be wrong but he’ll never admit it, these are all essential character defects for a successful career in stand-up comedy!

You may have seen him on Limmy’s show or heard him on BBC Radio Scotland’s Breaking the News but what you might not know is that Raymond Mearns has been one of Scotland’s top live stand-up comedians for the past 15 years and he’s coming to a venue near you!

Wild As The White Waves
FROM:29-05-2019
TO:29-05-2019
+ More Info +

It is 1950, at Steepletop, a remote farmhouse in the pinewoods of upstate New York. Through the early hours of the morning, Edna St Vincent Millay drinks and reminisces, sharing the extraordinary highs and lows of her tumultuous life.

The first woman to win the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry, she was an icon for Dorothy Parker and the Greenwich Village set in 1920s New York, an accomplished pianist, a translator of French and Latin verse, a political activist, a drug addict and an alcoholic. Openly bisexual, her poetry celebrated womens’ sexuality with a new freedom that brought her fame and notoriety. What Byron was to 19th century England, Vincent was to 20th century America – the embodiment of genius, passion and scandal.

Interspersed with excerpts from her poetry and letters, Wild as The White Waves is an intimate, witty and moving encounter with a remarkable woman who resonates as powerfully today as she did in her own lifetime.

Scottish Ensemble present Dance Music
FROM:30-05-2019
TO:30-05-2019
+ More Info +

Combining the pleasures of listening to music with the satisfaction of moving our bodies is one of humanity’s oldest rituals – and one which has quite happily resulted in some of the most rhythmic and compelling music across the globe, and throughout history.

Dance Music is a joyful sashay through a host of pieces written with our feet in mind. Alongside Piazzolla’s undeniably infectious take on Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, pulsating with the rhythms of Latin America, comes the breathless tarantella that ends Schubert’s Death and The Maiden and an assortment of other waltzes, marches, serenades and romances.

Leader of the Swedish Radio Orchestra, Malin Broman is an award-winning violinist with a particular passion for chamber music, and a desire to re-define the concert experience…

The oldest theatre in Scotland, the Theatre Royal is in the heart of Dumfries and first opened its doors in 1792. It has strong associations with the renowned Scottish poet Robert Burns, who wrote several pieces specifically for its stage.

The Theatre saw multiple changes of ownership during the first half the of 20th Century, before being bought by the Guild of Players in 1959.
The Guild managed to secure support from new sources and instead of planning on building new facilities upwards, they looked towards expanding outwards. Adjacent buildings were purchased, and renovation work began in 2014, completed by the end of 2015. The newly refurbished building includes several new spaces while maintaining many of the historic features, ushering Scotland’s oldest theatre into the 21st Century.

Attend one of the touring productions presented throughout the year, which includes live music, stand-up comedy and theatrical dramas. The Guild of Players presents a regular season of four shows, as well as a family-friendly Christmas pantomime.

Grab a drink at the bar before the show or enjoy a meal from the customised theatre menus at nearby restaurants. Want to get hands-on at the theatre? You can participate in one of the workshops or join our group of fantastic volunteers and help build sets and design costumes.
