“Great afternoon with walking theatre company. Everyone enjoyed themselves and it was good to see children experiencing a taste of Shakespeare . Great introduction for them to the classics.WTC worked very hard and we would certainly come to see them again. Wonderful entertainment is a spectacular setting.”

A Walking Theatre Whirlwind Weekend

And despite Britain being caught in the dying thralls of Hurricane Bertha, TWTC has manned and womaned up and given our deliciously soggy best. Midsummers Nights Dream at Dunollie on Friday night was brilliant and the sturdy cast and audience were rewarded with Prosecco and cappuccino – thanks Dunollie! Today we reach Shettleston with our brilliant ‘Commonwealth Kitchen’, Alice McKerrow and Steph Falls, do what TWTC does best entertain, whatever the weather. Thanks to our amazing actors and our brilliant audiences… Tomorrow Kirkintilloch, for WWII Flying Kitchen.
