Synopsis:
Midsummer's weekend in Edinburgh. It's raining. Bob's a failing car salesman on the fringes of the city's underworld. Helena's a high-powered divorce lawyer with a taste for other people's husbands. She's totally out of his league; he's not her type at all. They absolutely should not sleep together. Which is, of course, why they do.

Midsummer is the story of a great lost weekend of bridge-burning, car chases, wedding bust-ups, bondage miscalculations, midnight trysts and self-loathing hangovers.

A collaboration between playwright David Greig and singer-songwriter Gordon McIntyre, Midsummer opened at the Traverse Theatre in October 2008 and was revived for an international tour in the summer of 2009

The Malta premiere features actors/musicians Chris Dingli and Paul Portelli and Actor/singer Maxine Aquilina. Together they bring to life the romantic comedy we've all been waiting for as we look forward to Midsummer!  BOOK NOW by visiting www.teatrumanoel.com.mt - Tickets at only Euro20 (Euro15 for senior citizens and students) - Hurry!
