PlotReady yourself for the eightsome highland reel as Alan Melville and Charles Zwar's delightfully charming romance relates the story of young Marigold's thrilling escape from the dullness of Peebles to the excitement of Edinburgh. Warmly received when it played London in 1959, Marigold's pretty collection of songs, lush orchestrations and magnificently theatrical atmosphere is a guaranteed retro blast of late 1950s theatre. Jeremy Brett makes the most dashing of heroes, while film star Jean Kent's only musical recording offers a unique French accent.
