Newtongrange drama group, Pit Pony Productions has high hopes of taking its production to next year’s Edinburgh Fringe following two sold-out performances of its first production in August.

The group’s founder Paul Wilson said: “We are overwhelmed with the support from the local community and especially the Borders Railway community fund which allowed us to create the perfect stage set for our play. We are excited about the railway opening next September and, who knows, if things keep going in the right direction, we will hopefully be able to use it to travel to future performances!”
