It's festival season here in Edinburgh! And Herioters are not strangers to the stage. 

This #ThrowbackThursday we took a look into the archives to bring you some memories of Heriot's stage productions from years gone by. 

The Admirable Crichton (1948) and The Kingmaker (also 1948) saw Herioters treading the boards in the school hall. With all costumes, sets and stage production done "in house" these productions were truly a team effort. Whilst many involved did not pursue a career in the arts, there may be one or two familiar famous faces in these productions! 

Do you remember any stage productions from your days at Heriot's? Share in the comments below!
