North and South at Pitlochry Theatre

29th August to 25th September (various times and days)
North And South by Elizabeth Gaskell, adapted by Janys Chambers
Pitlochry Festival Theatre, Port-Na-Craig Rd, Pitlochry PH16 5DR
Strong-willed vicar’s daughter Margaret Hale has grown up in the rarefied atmosphere of rural southern England, so when her family relocates to the roughness and vitality of a northern factory town, she is thrown into a new life of strikes and strife. Hot-blooded industrialist John Thornton rules his cotton mill with an iron hand. Sparks fly when Margaret challenges both master and mill-hand, only to discover that not all of her southern beliefs hold true. A tale for today, this timely adaptation of Elizabeth Gaskell’s classic 19th-century novel by BAFTA-nominated writer Janys Chambers explores the complex relationship between North and South, and between women and men of different classes. Can reason overcome pride and prejudice? Can compassion triumph over a blind adherence to market forces? Can love bloom amongst the snowy fibres of a money-driven cotton mill? Tickets: from £16.00 PLUS groups offers, family tickets and concessions. Box Office Tel:- 01796 484626
