Amateur theatre company Puck’s Players present a stage production of Nicholas Stuart Gray’s The Seventh Swan. Puck’s Players was originally formed in 2020 by Centre for Fantasy and the Fantastic members Marita Arvaniti and Chris Lynch-Becher with the aim to stage and perform fantasy theatre. This is their second production, after a successful staging of Terry Pratchett’s The Truth, adapted by Steven Briggs in the summer of 2022.  

Written by beloved Scottish fantasy novelist and playwright Nicholas Stuart Gray in 1962, The Seventh Swan tells the story of Alasdair, a young man cursed with a swan’s wing for a right arm. This unique sequel to Hans Christian Andersen’s beloved fairytale “The Wild Swan” relocates the story to the clan times of 16th Central Scotland. Could Alasdair ever feel human again? Could he forget the freedom of the sky? Mixing witchcraft, family drama, and high adventure, the exploits of Alasdair, Fenella and the mercenary Ewen are a poignant blend of humour, excitement, and tragedy.

Puck’s Players promise audiences a classic family tale filled to the brim with adventure and romance, tragedy and heroism! Get your free ticket here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/the-seventh-swan-tickets-612262663107
