7. Theatre in Victorian Inverness

This episode brings a guest host, Sara Boussaikouk, who talks to us about Victorian theatres in Inverness. We read archival documents which describe the venues and performers of the Northern Scottish theatre scene.

We dip our toes into romanticisation of the Scottish Highlands through the Sir Walter Scott effect. This episode also looks into the life of a powerhouse of Scottish Theatre: actress and theatre manager Jessie Fraser.
