Following their sell out performance of Talking Heads in 2012, Old Forge Productions are back at Bowhill Theatre near Selkirk.

This time, it’s with a World Premiere performance of Moving On, and this play will be performed by the playwright herself.

Moving On, a new one woman play by Claire Charles – the pen name of actress Michelle Ellerington – is an insightful, observant, poignant and heart-breakingly funny look at love, life, laughter and living.

Katherine takes us on a journey of nostalgic discovery from childhood to middle age. An emotional rollercoaster that will have you sobbing in your seats and rolling in the aisles.

Michelle told us: “This is the first time I am performing my own work. We are a very small company and so have only ever perform monologue-style plays.”

Theatregoers will see similarities in the style of writing to Alan Bennett and Willy Russell.

Michelle added: “Selkirk seemed to be the perfect setting for the first performance. Our audiences north of the border, have always been so appreciative.”

The premiere takes place at 8pm on Saturday, April 26.

Tickets are priced at £12 (optional supper at 6.30pm – £13). To book, call 01750 22204, or order from www.borderevents.com – 01750 725480.
