IN Hatches Matches and Dispatches at Mayfield Salisbury Church, we meet the family McIvor in 1924.

Mayfield Salisbury Church

Carol is a week away from her wedding to Robin Burns but struggling to keep a smile on her face as that very same day, her beloved aunty Nellie is being buried.

Those familiar with Edinburgh are in for a wee treat with this script from Alan Cochrane. Street and place names abound and are all clearly enjoyed by this warmly appreciative audience. We see some lovely performances from Erin Kelly as Carol, Ronnie Millar as her perplexed dad and Lyzzie Dell as the irrepressible Nellie.

The set also deserves a mention, boasting all the lovely attention to detail for which EPT are locally renowned.

This is a fun show with a feisty script that keeps the audience entertained.

Until Saturday
