1 May @ 8:00 am - 31 October @ 5:00 pm

Daily – May to 31st October
Duchess Kitty Exhibition Scotland’s first female MP
Blair Castle, Blair Atholl PH18 5TL
The story of Scotland’s first female MP, is the story of how society changed to allow women to have the vote. The Duchess affectionately known as Kitty, a petite beauty and talented musician. She visited Blair Castle in 1896 and stole the 8th Duke’s heart. She was initially a vocal opponent of women’s suffrage in her earlier years. Relatively unknown by the public today the new exhibition will explain what an important and influential lady she was. In 1924 she became the first Scottish women MP often arguing against the government, she was never afraid to voice her opinions. She voted against her female peers being able to vote at 21. She was forced to leave the party on account of her strongly held beliefs there should be no appeasement with Adolf Hitler. A fervent campaigner for women and children both at home and abroad she visited war zones reporting back on conditions. Once her political career ended she returned to the Castle and her duties with her usual enthusiasm, pride and love. Tel: 01796 481207 Web: https://blair-castle.co.uk/

Safe in the knowledge that only Charles can see her, Elvira embarks on a series of troublesome events that quickly move from somewhat harmless to very dangerous… Blithe Spirit is Coward’s most successful, inventive, highly spirited comedy.

The Crucible by Arthur Miller

20 June @ 8:00 pm - 27 September @ 8:00 pm
The Crucible by Arthur Millar at Pitlochry

20th June to 27th September (various times and days)
The Crucible by Arthur Miller
Pitlochry Festival Theatre, Port-Na-Craig Rd, Pitlochry PH16 5DR
For the puritanical folk of Salem, Massachusetts, the news that their young women have been conjuring spirits in the forest is devastating. It means the devil is amongst them. And the devil must be hunted down and driven out, whatever the cost. Fear and suspicion spirals quickly out of control, unleashing a murderous powder keg of accusations, hysteria, lust and revenge. Arthur Miller’s 1953 play is one of the most powerful pieces of 20th century theatre. Written as an allegory for McCarthyism, when the US government persecuted its citizens for being communists, this parable of politics, religious fervour and fear is a masterpiece which still resonates in the 21st Century. Tickets: from £16.00 PLUS groups offers, family tickets and concessions. Box Office Tel:- 01796 484626

Heritage by Nicola McCartney at Pitlochry Festival Theatre

The Heritage at Pitlochry Theatre

Heritage by Nicola McCartney
Pitlochry Festival Theatre, Port-Na-Craig Rd, Pitlochry PH16 5DR
Canada 1914. Sarah McCrea stands on the threshold of womanhood, facing a bright future in a new country. Leaving Ulster behind, Sarah and her family carve out their existence in an emerging community. Drawn to one another through tales of a near-forgotten, mythical Ireland, Sarah and her neighbour Michael Donoghue become firm friends. But when Sarah and Michael’s relationship deepens by Nicola McCartney and his determination to define his identify catches fire, centuries of conflict threaten to blight their love. And for Sarah, the realisation dawns that old battles are being fought on new territory. First staged in 1998, Heritage is a poignant and poetic exploration of love, identity, tribalism and the need to belong. As stark and poignant as the sweeping landscape it conjures, all at once it is epic, lyrical and timeless. Tickets: from £16.00 PLUS groups offers, family tickets and concessions. Box Office Tel:- 01796 484626

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
