Description

The year is 1914. Edinburgh’s Heart of Midlothian Football Club have won 19 of 21 matches and stand on the brink of becoming Scottish league champions. In a remarkable show of comradeship and courage, 13 of their players volunteer to serve together in McCrae’s Battalion destined to fight in France. This is their story; an evocative and dramatic journey through Tynecastle Park led by the players/soldiers in a unique site-specific performance. Follow The Hearts from the football fields of Gorgie to the battlefields of the Somme. Sold-out shows in 2018 and 2019.

This play is beautiful and emotive from the very first moments. I found myself desperately trying not to shed a tear as the actor who begins the show blew me away without saying a word. I could feel the emotion in his performance. The entire cast continued to perform a beautiful true story that you really have to see. Stunning.
