Annville with Heather Spears & Martin Travers
Sun 18 Aug 16:00 - 17:30
Killings in Kirkfieldbank
In 1883, Willie Brown murdered his cousin Charlotte Spears and maid Katie Cameron, before committing suicide in Annville House near Lanark. One of Scotland’s greatest tragedies has been told in Annville, a new Scots play by Martin Travers, adapted from The Flourish by Canadian novelist Heather Spears. Travers and Spears are joined by Scots Scriever Dr Michael Dempster to discuss the story, along with a cast of actors who read key scenes, plunging us into Scotland’s dark past.
