Day 204 - An Actor's Choice No. 8
Updated: Oct 24, 2020
Continuing our thread of actors we love, talking about plays they love...
Here's Pitlochry Festival Theatre Ensemble's fabulous Liz Ewing talking about one of her favourite plays: Ranjit Bolt's adaptation of Moliere's Tartuffe!
Like us, Pitlochry Festival Theatre started their online series #PFTLightHopeJoy at the start of lockdown. It was created to bring light, hope and joy to the people of Scotland and beyond.
'Like keeping ourselves nourished with 3 meals a day, #PFTLightHopeJoy posts 3 times a day to keep the soul nourished. PFT is delighted to have been asked to partner with Perth Theatre on Actor's Choice. The PFT Summer Ensemble 2020 loved the opportunity!'
