Helena is a divorce attorney looking for a way to keep her mind off of her dark secrets. Bob is a criminal doing odd jobs waiting for his next assignment. This ill-matched couple meet in a bar in Edinburgh, the capitol of Scotland. Soon afterwards, they are back at her place in what they both assume is a one night stand. However, it leads to a wild night out the very next day. The evening is highlighted by the spending of $15,000 in cash which Bob just acquired after selling a stolen car.

Patrick Mulvey is hilarious as Bob. Patrick’s gift for comedy is accompanied by his musical talent on guitar and his fantastic vocals. Matching him step for step is Chaon Cross as Helena. Chaon plays the ukulele and has a delightful voice. In addition, both actors display a knack for subtle Scottish accents!
This show is not a musical. Midsummer is a play with about ten indie rock style songs which is similar to Once, the musical about an Irish busker in Dublin and a Czech woman. Both shows are great plays about love with music.
