Studio Theatre Perth does a Highland fling into Spring with the lively comedy, “Hamish.”
Family history comes alive when Kelli plans a trip for she and her husband Gordon to visit his ancestral home in Scotland. Neither is prepared when they discover a “haunted” past they never knew existed, and the strong ties that bind them to a legacy of family and true love.
Award-winning playwright Michael Grant has written a modern Scots-Canadian legend that’s sure to entertain and beguile. Rival clans, kilts, and a motley Highland crew bring heartwarming hilarity to a play that brims with Scottish wit and spirit. In the words of director Sheila Jasiak, “Hamish is a love story, not between a man and a woman, but between family… knowing that you can’t go ahead in life without really knowing where you came from.”
Hamish runs from April 4th – 14th. Evening shows: 7:30 pm. Sunday matinees: 2:00 pm. Advance tickets are $24 at Tickets Please in the Matheson House Museum Visitor Centre and at the Studio Theatre on show nights. Student discount available with ID. Save $5 on opening night!
