Dundee actor Mark Rannoch is performing at the Edinburgh Fringe in A War of Two Halves.
The play marks 100 years since the end of the First World War and tells the story of 13 Hearts FC players who volunteered to serve together in McCrae’s Battalion.
Mark said: “The play shows real Hearts players at a time when the media criticised them for doing well in the league and not going out to serve.
“A lot of the actors are from Edinburgh and Glasgow so it’s great to be able to represent Dundee.
“It’s a good way to get a lot of exposure at the world’s greatest arts festival and an honour to be able to play there.”
Mark, a graduate of the Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts in London, hopes to work in theatre or television and has started auditioning for shows such as River City and Peaky Blinders.
He added: “Dundee has a good reputation for acting and gave my first chance to get into the industry.”
A War of Two Halves is playing at Hearts’ Tynecastle Park until August 19
