‘The Hoose’ returns to the Blue Toon

A drama written, produced and directed by an Aberdeenshire playwright which covers 100 years of local history returns to Peterhead’s Community centre theatre in April.

The Willowbank “All Stars” Drama Group originally performed “The Hoose” in October last year following a revamp of facilities at the Peterhead Community Centre Theatre.

Aberdeenshire Council has made the event more accessible by improving wheelchair access and providing disabled toilets behind the scenes.

The play brings forward some of the area’s rich and glorious history using drama, storytelling, song, live music and projected images mixing together to produce an all round show.

The “Hoose” itself is a listed building on Threadneedle and St Andrew Streets in Peterhead surrounded by whaling, spa and herring-fishing heritage.

The property has been conserved and adapted by the National Trust for Scotland under their Little Houses Improvements Scheme for Tenants First Housing Co-operative.

The show is written, produced and directed by drama writer Morag Skene and will be performed at Peterhead Community Centre Theatre at 7.30pm on Wednesday, April 6 and Thursday, April 7.

Tickets for the free performances - donations accepted - are available at Peterhead Community Centre reception, or by post from:

Willowbank Day Service. Glendaveny, Peterhead, AB42 3DY, or by telephone: (01779) 838 301.
