Margaret McPherson

I have been interested in all aspects of Drama after being introduced to it through various school productions.  This took the form of backstage work initially but when I got the chance to appear on stage (albeit briefly) I  realised that that was where I belonged.
I joined Granton Parish Church Drama Group in 1980 and appeared in my first major role in "The Campbell's are Comin'".   I was hooked.    I then appeared regularly in many productions, which included "Pardon Me Prime Minister",  "Wanted One Body", "Noises Off", "Ne'er the Twain", and "Hatches Matches and  Dispatches"..     I have also directed a Production of "Dial M for Murder".    I very much enjoyed my time there.
In 2011 I was asked to audition for a production that the ETA were performing called "A Fistul of Monday's".   I was absolutely delighted to get the part of Sophie.   The ETA are a very exciting group and are not afraid to push the boundaries.    I am delighted to have become a member.
