Matinée idol Garry Essendine has it all: wealth, fame, good looks, a nice line in witty repartée and a splendid selection of dressing gowns. The centre of his own universe, he has more fans than he knows what to do with. The fact that he’s also vain, egotistical, foul tempered and on the brink of middle age tends to get overlooked. . .
"When staying in Pitlochry during the early part of the war, I chanced to see a stately house with a fairly large garden, quite close to the town. I at once realised that here my dream theatre might well be established in this fashionable resort right in the heart of Scotland"… John Stewart, Founder of Pitlochry Festival Theatre.
