The Infamous Brothers Davenport



The Forum's Resident Playwright Peter Arnott is in rehearsals with a new play at the Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh


Taking a short break from genomics the Forum's Resident Playwright Peter Arnott is in rehearsals in December 2011 with his script for The Infamous Brothers Davenport.

The play can be seen at The Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh from the 19 January until 11 February 2012 and is inspired by the true story of the Davenport Brothers. Set in 1862 audiences can look forward to an exciting evening of magic and illusion as they follow the on and off stage lives of Willy and Ira Davenport.

Directed by Candice Edmunds and Jamie Harrison and featuring original compositions by Phamie Gow the play sees the first collaboration between the Lyceum Theatre and the company Vox Motus. Following it's run at the Lyceum this production will tour around Scotland.
