BOTHWELL, PRISONER OF MALMÖ


by TORQUIL MACLEOD, SUSAN MACLEOD & FRASER JAMES MACLEOD

1569. A cell in Malmöhus. Its occupant is James Hepburn, 4th Earl of Bothwell. With the aid of Ylva, the jailer's daughter, Bothwell tells the story of his life, his love of Scotland and of Mary Queen of Scots. It is a tale of power, intrigue and avarice

Front Row Theatre is proud to present new writing and a world premier run this August!


Here we finally get to know the tale of James Hepburn, Malmöhus’s most famous prisoner. Entertaining, and at times hard to believe, his story of battles, manipulation, prisons and Queens has been dusted off and brought to life by author Torquil MacLeod (The Malmö Mysteries), writer Susan MacLeod, and Front Row Theatre founder, writer and dramatist Fraser James MacLeod, in this exciting play.

A CHRISTMAS CAROL


SOME LOVELY QUOTES FROM OUR FANS!


"The command of the narrative was mesmerizing!"


"The switching between characters was seamlessly done." 


"His cleverly defined depiction of the characters is masterful, and his talented portrayal of their temperaments and emotions is acting at its best."

A

CHRISTMAS CAROL

BY CHARLES DICKENS

Adapted by Mark Base & Fraser James MacLeod

Due to the loss of his source reading material, Charles Dickens takes the opportunity to dramatize his classic tale, A Christmas Carol. Dickens enacts the inspiring story of Ebenezer Scrooge's redemption with warmth and humour.


Front Row Theatre is proud to present its version of the timeless classic A Christmas Carol, in its original language. Our very own Fraser James MacLeod will be playing Dickens himself in which he plays every character imaginable: the tight-fisted misery that is Ebenezer Scrooge; the glorious Ghosts of the past, present and future; and of course, Bob Cratchit and Tiny Tim.


It is the perfect tale to be told on those dark winter nights just before Christmas. This story will enchant and delight people of all ages, as it has done for the last 178 years. Heart-warming, funny, thrilling, and not to be missed!

Relive or discover for the first time the legend of The Boy Who Lived!


Many of us know about the world of Harry Potter and the adventures of the three friends, Harry, Ron and Hermione. Front Row Theatre gives you the chance to relive or discover those early days, when things seemed that bit more innocent and those important friendships were forming.

We see that Halloween in the magic world is not all pretend, and that finding ourselves in a fantasy world is often fraught with danger. Let’s experience together how Harry’s world is turned upside down, and how his life-changing friendships are formed. Welcome to Hogwarts!
