THE Devil is in the detail when it comes to site-specific theatre.

And fans are in for a treat this weekend as Grid Iron bring their luscious treat of a show, The Devil’s Larder, to Selkirk.

The Devil's Larder is a show that explores the impact of food on human society.

And is undoubtedly one of the company’s most successful and best-loved shows, having received many awards including a Scotsman Fringe First and a Herald Archangel when it played at the Debenhams store on Princes Street Edinburgh during Fringe 2005.

Jim Crace’s teasingly dark novella is the basis for a journey into a culinary underworld; an uncanny, uncomfortable examination of the envy, love, revenge, hypocrisy, loss and lust which seethe beneath the false calm of the menu, the shopping list and the recipe.

Crace’s recent novel, Harvest, was short-listed for the 2013 Man Booker Prize.

According to Scottish Theatre Web: “The Devil’s Larder is a glorious piece of theatre performed with great panache by a fine ensemble cast full of mischievous fun with all of them taking an obvious delight in the challenges of working with working with a promenade production.

"Underscoring and enhancing the production is some exquisite music composed and performed by David Paul Jones accompanied by Catriona McKay’s gorgeous harp playing. Ben Harrison’s adaptation and direction is a joy to behold, with each aspect of this production complimenting the others with music, lighting, performance and acting all wonderfully worked out making this a darkly comic and brilliant piece of theatre.”

The production combines excellent performances, live music and a ravishing score to take audience on a gorgeous journey into a culinary underworld. The Devil’s Larder is a site-responsive, promenade theatre production which will adapt itself into four very different venues on its 2015 tour of Scotland.

Selkirk’s The Haining provides quite a different context for the production from anywhere it has been before.

The eerie mansion house and lochside setting can only enhance what is already a captivating production.

Ben Harrison's adaptation waves a sinuous and treacherous path from narrative episode to story-telling, from installation to song, with live music performed by David Paul Jones and The Poozies harpist Mary Macmaster.

Grid Iron examine how food can act as a catalyst for unleashing our fears, desires and taboos.

Originally commissioned by Cork 2005 European Capital of Culture to create a brand new production as part of the city’s year long cultural celebration, Grid Iron were part of Relocation, one of the largest, most ambitious and most high-profile projects of the Cork 2005 programme, conceived and programmed by Cork based theatre company Corcadorca.

The Devil’s Larder brought Relocation, to a close before transferring to Edinburgh for the Festival Fringe where it played at Debenhams department store on Princes Street. As well as winning awards, the production also received nominations in the Critics Awards for Theatre in Scotland in the categories of Best Director, Best Ensemble, Best Male Performance and Best Use of Music.

The Devil's Larder will be performed at The Haining from tomorrow (Thursday) through to Sunday, November 1.
