ARBROATH’S Hospitalfield House has been used as the location for a new promotional video.

The historic setting is the backdrop to a trailer for the production of J.B. Priestley’s ‘Time and the Conways’ which is showing at the Dundee Rep Theatre in March.

The promo sees scenes from the play set against the music of the Lou Reed song, ‘Perfect Day’.

The video has been created by film makers Ed Broughton and Nikki Steel of Bonny Brae Productions.

Nikki said: “Hospitalfield House was a superb location for us. We wanted people to have an idea of the mood and setting of the play.

“This involved recreating a drinks party, full of wealthy and privileged guests sipping champagne in a beautifully furnished and decorated mansion. It worked even better than we’d hoped.”

Ed added: “It might surprise people that we chose a song by one of the most anarchic figures of American rock music to promote the work of a great 20th century playwright like Priestley, but they make an eerily good mix.”

‘Time and the Conways’ is presented by Dundee Rep Ensemble and Royal Lyceum Theatre, Edinburgh, playing at Dundee Rep from March 13 to 30.

Before that it will be at the Lyceum in Edinburgh from February 15 to March 9.
