Parish Dunkeld

by Mark Loewenstern

In rural Scotland in 1793, a small parish believes it is safe from the revolutions shaking the world.  But when a well-intentioned man of reason arrives, bringing violent upheaval, the people of Parish Dunkeld must fight their way back from the brink.  A true ensemble drama where the parish itself is the protagonist, and each character’s journey is bound up with all the others.

Moving, Timely and Important

Some plays are entertaining, some are important and some make you think for weeks after you experience it. This play is all three. The view of a town slowly falling apart as the trappings of civilization fall away is chilling. Parish Dunkheld deftly asks the viewer to think about the delicate, fragile web that holds us all together. This is more important now then ever. The fact that it does all this in the context of a gripping, entertaining and exciting story with a compelling cast of characters is just truly impressive.
