End of Summer Song, Birnam Institute Players

End of Summer Song: Beatrix Potter in Perthshire

Part of The Queen's Platinum Jubilee - Dunkeld Celebrations

4 June 2022

Birnam Institute Players present a full-length play with songs about the famous writer.

Every October, a young Beatrix Potter is sad to leave the family’s Highland Perthshire idyll and return to London. For four months each year she has been immersed in nature and local folk tales. 

This comes to an abrupt halt, the year she is 16. A decade later she returns for two summers, now a published illustrator and a promising mycologist. In three remarkable days she makes a worthy scientific contribution, and writes the first drafts of the Peter Rabbit and Jeremy Fisher books. 

And the rest is history...

This one-off performance tells the story of Beatrix Potter's precious and influential time in Perthshire, with some very special cameo appearances from those characters we know and love.

Part of The Queen's Platinum Jubilee - Dunkeld Celebrations

 Festival Info   >

This is Pitlochry musician Tom McEwan's first full-length play, piecing together her Perthshire experience each childhood summer, and how the local flora and fauna stayed with her on her return to London.

Such lovely memories of coming to Birnam as a wee one, visiting the garden and the exhibition then exploring the woods that inspired Beatrix Potter.
