FAREWELL MISS JULIE LOGAN by JM Barrie
> Adapted For the Stage by Rose MacLennan Craig
Winter in the Glens. The inhabitants of a snowbound village are cut off from the world and almost from each other. All is white and still. This is when the Strangers come, and if they can, they will mischief you.
A Minister of the Kirk has returned after many years to his first desolate ministry, to exorcise the memory of the first woman he ever loved but can never forget. As he re-lives his past, we discover that Miss Julie Logan might not be what she seems. Could she be one of the Strangers?
After a sell-out world premiere at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2005 and an equally successful tour of the Highlands in 2006, Farewell Miss Julie Logan, from the classic highland ghost story by J.M.Barrie, starting at Balnaboth House, deep in the glen that inspired the story. It was a unique and atmospheric venue, and the play seemed to claim the house as its own.
Rose MacLennan Craig's new stage adaptation brought to life Barrie's work of avid inspiration arising from his lifelong interest in Bonnie Prince Charlie, and captured the essence of the Highlands in the old Doric Scots language.
Farewell Miss Julie Logan was Barrie's last work, a novella marking his passionate return to the Scotland he grew up in, after a life as a highly successful London West End playwright. At the age of 70 he came back to the Angus of his childhood, was honoured by the people of Kirriemuir, and rented Balnaboth House, which is believed to have been the inspiration for his novella, and where he entertained everyone including the prime minister and the king and queen.
