Murder in the Garden

The Scene

This performance began in Lady Stair's Close, off Edinburgh's Royal Mile, then moved on to James' Court and East Princes Street Gardens, where the murder of The Elder McCarthy occurred.

Here, The Young Lassie, Alice Turner and James McCarthy listen to the local man, Policeman Struthers, as the body of The Elder McCarthy lies beside them on the grass.

 

The Performers

Frantic Redhead Productions performed two "walking plays" during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, 2007.  For these plays, the audience followed the cast around the streets and closes of Edinburgh.  The plays were:

- Macbeth, (The Scottish Play) has been performed here  for many years.

- Sherlock Holmes Murder in the Gardens is a world premier in 2007.

I felt that Edinburgh made an ideal backdrop to productions such as these.

Frantic Redhead's Producer, Ginger Perkins of Los Angeles, has been presenting theatre, music, dance and art at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe for the past twenty-five years.   However, 2007 is to be her final year in this role.
