A Crash Course In Stage Combat with Kidnapped's Stewart McCheyne

Posted on 22 May 2014

Anyone acquainted with the story of Kidnapped will know that Robert Louis Stevenson’s adventure novel isn’t short of a swashbuckling sword-fight or two!

But what preparation goes into performing these sequences night after night on tour? We caught up with cast member Davie Balfour and Kidnapped Fight Captain, Stewart McCheyne, to find out ahead of the show’s visit next week for half term.

Watch our latest behind-the-scenes video for a crash course in the art of 18th Century stage combat.

Kidnapped sails onto the B2 stage from Tuesday 27th – Sat 31st May. Tickets are available via Box Office on 024 7655 3055 or online at
