Tam Dean Burn on A Satire of the Three Estates

We hit the ground running in 2013 with a series of production meetings at Stirling Castle followed by nine days of intensive script work with actors Alison Peebles, Gerry Mulgrew, Peter Kenny and Tam Dean Burn.  It was the first time we had really tackled the play in its full, rich, and complex entirety… more of which later.

In the meantime, here’s TV and film actor Tam Dean Burn talking stirringly about his experience of working on the text, with academics, and his thoughts on the Satire‘s themes and language.  (The above image is the view he mentions; the panorama of Arthur’s Seat and the Salisbury Crags from Greg Walker’s office window!)

    Great news that these historic pieces are to be reenacted. Where will one actually buy tickets, no mention in any of the blurb to date or is to be performed in front of a selected group of naer do wells and histerical academics?

      Great news where and when will the tickets be released

        Whilst living in London I am very keen to attend this mammoth production i.e. the long version although I may hedge my bets and also book for the shortened version! When are tickets available?

    No it will be open to the public. Tickets have not been released yet but watch this space. You can also follow @satire3estates if you’re on twitter for all the latest.
