This coming week, the Portobello Drama Group celebrates its 50th anniversary. It started off in a small way as the Drama Group for St Philip’s (now Portobello and Joppa Parish Church). But it quickly grew in numbers and ambition, moving from one-act plays to musicals. For this anniversary year, the company has revived one of its own creations: Brodie – the Musical. It’s the story of that upright citizen cum gambler and thief, Deacon Brodie; the eponymous tavern on the High Street is on the site of one he frequented. We went to meet the Drama Group in rehearsal.
