Leith-based theatre company, Citadel Arts Group, return to the Fringe with ‘ Dancing with Mrs Murphy.’
‘Dancing with Mrs Murphy’ is a darkly edgy drama set in Leith, 1956: the Suez Crisis signals the last stages of Empire. Rose Murphy, staggering under the pressure of work and family, is all shook up by Elvis. Can she dance into a brighter future? It’s a play about mothers and sons and coping with the changes brought about by the 1950s.
‘Dancing with Mrs Murphy’ is part of Citadel Arts Group’s 1950s project supported by City of Edinburgh Council, random arts giving, GoodnessKNOWS, Port of Leith Housing, the OFFF Over Fifties £500 Fund. A book of local memories, ’Remembering the 1950s’ will be produced, also a shorter play, inspired by the memories, which Citadel will take into local schools.
