Former BYT members joined the production as well.

A BYT spokesperson said: “What’s unusual this time around is that the team running the project are all former participants of the Borders Youth Theater.

Caitlin Morris spent as much time acting as studying in her undergraduate days at St Andrews and recently obtained her MA in Acting from the Royal Institution.

Esmé Babineux has extensive acting experience across borders, regularly in Shakespeare at the Traquair, but also in other venues including the Edinburgh Fringe.

This is her second directorial role with BYT.

Lewis Tickam, of Hawick, is an aspiring writer and, more recently, an experimental filmmaker who has been part of the Borders Youth Theater for many years.

“Although this is not the main purpose of Borders Youth Theater, a large number of young people are moving on to a career in theater and the other arts, and it is a pleasure to return to share what they have learned with a new generation.”

They added, “BYT is grateful for the support from Live Borders that offers young people the opportunity to work and perform in ‘real theatre.’”

Tickets are £9 and £6 for under-16s and concessions.
