Inverness Royal Academy: School Play, June 1932: The Land of Heart's Desire

Concerts and dramatic performances were a regular feature of the extra-curricular activities of Inverness Royal Academy in the 1930s. In June 1932, the Academy presented three performances of a concert which included the plays The Land of Heart's Desire by W. B. Yeats and Square Pegs by Clifford Bax. This photograph shows the cast of The Land of Heart's Delight. The performers were:
Mary, Sybil Hay;
Fairy Child, Ena Duguid;
Shawn, Ian Morrison;
Maurteen, Ian Duthie;
Bruidget, Nan Hunter;
Father Hart, Robert Macbean.

In summer 1931, to raise money for the sports fund, excerpts from Riders to the Sea (J. M. Synge) and Hiawatha (derived from Coleridge-Taylor's work of that name) had been performed, along with playlets from younger members of the school and musical items. In September 1937 the "Biennial Dramatic Entertainment" took place in the Empire Theatre, then in Academy Street, with a programme of short plays interspersed with choral items, one of the plays having been written by some former pupils who had only recently left the school.
