Besides their summer season productions they also have a full programme of tours, talks, concerts and much more, which run throughout the whole year.
From May to October there are 6 excellent shows which are on a daily rotation meaning you can stay 6 days and see 6 plays or 3 plays in 2 days.
This Summer Season at PFT promises to be the most unique yet…….
High Society by Arthur Kopit. A Cole Porter musical, which PFT anticipate to be even more popular than last year’s Carousel.
Mary Rose by J.M Barrie. A poignant and chilling supernatural drama set either side of the 1st World War. Tells about the innocence and loss of youth.
Europe by David Greig. A dark, complex tale of shifting borders and refugees which follows the hugely successful production Pyrenees in 2015.
People by Alan Bennet. Receiving its Scottish premiere at PFT this perfectly pitched comedy, a rude & riotous exploration of the heritage industry!
The Ruling Class by Peter Barnes. A wickedly, funny satire about an aristocratic family when they discover one of their own is a paranoid schizophrenic with a Messiah complex!
Absurd Person Singular by Alan Ayckbourn. This 1970’s suburban sit-com has truthful, cringe-inducing observations about marriage and status. Three ill-matched couples, three different kitchens and three horrendous Christmases!
Look out for this year’s Autumn Production which at the moment is remaining a closely guarded secret! They have however revealed this year’s Winter musical will be Singin’ In The Rain known for its stunning song and dance routines.
