We are continuing our series of virtual table reads in Halloween week, when we would have been presenting Tracy Letts’ Bug, with a suitably melodramatic classic – an adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. We will be gathering online on Wednesday 28 October to bring the horror to life on Zoom.

Virtual table-read

Our rehearsal rooms may be quieter than usual at this time of year, but we still have some theatrical activity for you to get involved in as we’re arranging a virtual table-read for Monday 10th August at 7:30pm. The EGTG committee have chosen a selection of classical works to perform digitally in the months when we would have been appearing on stage.

We will return after the interval.

We on the EGTG committee have been closely monitoring updates from the Scottish Government on the easing of the lockdown, as I’m sure many of us have been, and under current guidance we don’t think it would be practical or responsible to prepare for a live production this year. So for the safety of the potential cast and audience we have made the decision to postpone the remainder of our 2020 season to 2021. We have already spoken to relevant rights holders and have received permission to go ahead with our performances next year. We hope you will continue to give us your support and look forward to seeing you all in person next year.
