Rebecca's Midnight

A promenade performance, set against the striking backdrop of Craigmillar Castle for children between the ages of 8-12.


Rebecca wants to disappear.  She has tried everything she can think of: magic tricks, running away, hiding.  She has never paid much attention to the castle before but tonight it looks like the perfect place to disappear.


A story about a girl trying to make sense of her place in the world, where she discovers that sometimes to disappear you have to find the place where you want to appear.
