‘Who Killed the Cock of the North?’

June 26, 2014 @ 6:30 pm - 7:45 pm

| £7.00

A sixteenth-century whodunit with a difference!

This is an interactive promenade drama performed in the precincts of Huntly Castle. Following the success of 'Trials and Triumphs', local writer Anne L. Forbes brings her story to life in this light hearted re-enactment of events leading to the downfall of the all powerful 4th Earl of Hunty, 'the Cock of the North'. It will be performed by Glass Drama Group directed by Alison Sellar. It is no ordinary historical drama….it has a twist: the audience will be asked to decide who or what was responsible! It is a story full of ambition, intrigue, violence and greed, set in the troubled times of 16th century Scotland, where the principal characters, with their individual agendas, are all entwined in a complex web of family tensions and political struggle. Come and enjoy it – in Holywood with Mary Queen of Scots, in Huntly Castle with the earl, his countess and the ever watchful servants and even on the battlefield. Living History at Huntly Castle!
