NEW Borders-based theatre company Firebrand has teamed up with the Buccleuch Arms Hotel, St Boswells, to add a special flavour to its latest production, Being Norwegian, David Greig’s one-act comedy, which is soon to open at the Wynd Theatre, Melrose.

In a nod to the play’s origins as part of the Glasgow Oran Mor’s highly successful “A play, a pie and a pint” season, audiences will be offered pre-show nibbles in the shape of the Buccleuch Arms Hotel’s own home-cured salmon gravadlax, for a Norwegian twist, and beer will also be served, courtesy of the Scottish Borders Brewery.

Firebrand’s joint artistic director, Janet Coulson, said: “We are delighted that such a prestigious local business has agreed to help support our work, particularly as it is our stated aim to encourage innovative links with Borders-based artists and enterprises.”

The Buccleuch’s Rachael Hamilton said: “We are excited to be sponsoring the latest Firebrand production and are looking forward to future collaborations with this exciting new company.”

Being Norwegian runs at the Wynd, from Thursday, March 10, to Saturday, March 12, at 8pm.

There are matinees at 1.30pm on Friday and Saturday.
