About this show

One of the Traverse Theatre's biggest hits of recent years, MIDSUMMER [A PLAY WITH SONGS] is the story of Bob and Helena and a great lost weekend of bridge burning, car chases, wedding bust ups, bondage miscalculations, midnight trysts and a small fortune to redistribute by this pair of mismatched lovers.

This lo-fi musical odyssey was called "Exhilarating...you float out laughing as if you've just swallowed sunshine on a spoon" by The Guardian. The Scotsman hailed it as a "warm-hearted, beautifully-sculpted musical romantic comedy." Time Out London gave it five stars, saying "Greig offers surprise after surprise!"
