It's a Midsummer's weekend in Edinburgh. It's raining. Two thirtysomethings are sitting in a New Town bar waiting for something to turn up.

Midsummer is the story of Bob and Helena and a great lost weekend of bridge burning, wedding bust-ups, chases, bondage miscalculations, midnight trysts and horrible hungover self loathing misery. A warm hearted adult romantic comedy!

Midsummer was first produced by the Traverse Theatre Edinburgh. It was widely acclaimed at the 2009 Edinburgh Fringe Festival and has since toured to Ireland, Canada and England.

Producer/director - David Ian Neville.
