The founding of Hibernian is the subject for a new play being produced for the Edinburgh Festival Fringe – with performances due to take place at Easter Road Stadium.

Rehearsals are now underway using a professional director and community actors for “A Field Of Our Own” written by Duncan Kidd, which tells the story of the first twenty years of Hibernian and of the people who made it happen.

The project is being run by Leith based theatre company Strange Town, as part of the GameChanger Public Social Partnership which involves the Club, Hibernian Community Foundation and NHS Lothian as well as dozens of other organisations.

You  could become involved in the event, due to take place in August. Director Steve Small is looking for people to join a specially created choir who will perform during the run of the play. If you are interested in taking part please get in touch by contacting Steve Small, Creative Director, Strange Town.

A spokesperson for GameChanger said: “It’s a really exciting project that will have messages relevant to today around immigration and integration, tolerance and respect. It will be something we are sure all Hibs fans would relish seeing, but to have the chance to take part is a real bonus for those interested.

“While the play itself promises to be something special, we are also hoping that we will see community activity programmes – such as community singing – flowing from it.”

Information on tickets for the play will be announced soon.
