Annville with Heather Spears & Martin Travers

Part of Edinburgh International Book Festival.

In 1883, Willie Brown murdered his cousin Charlotte Spears and maid Katie Cameron, before committing suicide in Annville House near Lanark. One of Scotland's greatest tragedies has been told in Annville, a new Scots play by Martin Travers, adapted from The Flourish by Canadian novelist Heather Spears. Travers and Spears are joined by Scots Scriever Dr Michael Dempster to discuss the story, along with a cast of actors who read key scenes, plunging us into Scotland's dark past.

Part of the Playing with Books series of events.
