The View From Castle Rock
By: Alice Munro, adapted by Linda McLean
Directed by: Marilyn Imrie
Co-produced by: Edinburgh International Book Festival and Stellar Quines
Nobel Laureate Alice Munro is the world’s greatest living short story writer. As a centrepiece of the 2016 Book Festival, Stellar Quines and Edinburgh International Book Festival present the world premiere of a specially commissioned theatrical adaptation of two stories, taken from the author’s collection The View from Castle Rock.
These stories imagine the extraordinary experiences of her Scottish ancestors who sailed from Leith Docks in 1818 in the hope of a better life in Canada.
