New script for hotel and theatre company

Have your say

TWO Edinburgh companies have teamed up to offer exclusive performances of theatre shows.

The Malmaison hotel in Leith and independent theatre production company Siege Perilous will collaborate on shows for an initial period of two years.

The partnership’s first offering will be a performance in May of Dundee-based playwright Bob Ballantine’s political comedy, Standing Stanes.

Malmaison general manager Stewart Campbell said: “Malmaison is always looking for innovative ways to entertain our hotel guests and local community.

“We had a bit of live music during last year’s Festival Fringe but this is the first time that we’ve tried something like this.

“Everyone here is really excited, and we are delighted to be working with another Leith-based company.”

Siege Perilous producer Tina Finch said: “We are thrilled to be able to show our work in such magnificent surroundings.

“Malmaison is a wonderful venue for our audience to come to at any time of year,” she added.

“We have some cracking new scripts to present and our artistic director, Andy Corelli, has already got a vision for how he’d like to present the first of these in May”.
