A powerful historical play with a strong Dumfries and Galloway interest. ‘The Blairs of Borgue’ by John
Lamb is based on the Blair family who lived in Borgue House, Kirkcudbright in the mid 18th century.

This fascinating story of the troubled Blairs reveals tensions and conflicts which touch on the role of
women, the effects of bitter sibling rivalry, and the treatment of mental illness. The drama also gives
insights into the 18th century legal system and the impact of slavery. Broughton House is a beautiful
18th century building whose main gallery, with its period furniture and décor, make it a sumptious
setting for the Blairs’ story.
