Monarch of the Glen nominated for Best New Play

WE'REdelighted by the Critics' Awards for Theatre in Scotland (CATS) nomination for Peter Arnott’s adaption of Compton Mackenzie’s novel The Monarch Of The Glen, which played at the theatre last autumn. Director Richard Baron said: "Although I have directed over forty shows at Pitlochry, The Monarch Of The Glen is the first time I have had the pleasure of collaborating on a newly commissioned work with a living Scottish playwright. Peter Arnott's astutely light-hearted adaptation of Compton Mackenzie's 1930s Highland farce brought an enjoyable contemporary bite of sharp political satire to a script that was great fun to stage in the madcap manner of previous Pitlochry productions.”
