The smallest distillery in Speyside is celebrating another first – having become a theatre venue for the first time.
Benromach Disitllery has sponsored the National theatre of Scotland’s show, The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart, at the Edinburgh Fringe and on tour in America but topped this all with two sell-out shows at their Visitor Centre earlier this month.
An evening of supernatural storytelling, music and theatre inspired by Border Ballads, Robert Burns and the poems of Robert Service, the show has been performed in pubs and other alternative venues while it toured, but this was the first time it has been performed at a distillery venue.
David Urquhart Joint Managing Director of Gordon & MacPhail, owners of the Benromach Distillery, said in a press release: “It was an honour to have this award winning artistic performance that has grown in popularity across Scotland, the UK and internationally be delivered at Benromach distillery, which is home to our hand-crafted single malts. It was an iconic occasion for the crew and cast as well as the audience who were thoroughly entertained on both nights.”
Elly Rothnie, Development Director, National Theatre of Scotland added: “The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart was a huge success at the Benromach distillery and the audiences loved sampling one of Scotland’s finest malt whiskies as part of the experience.”
