Happy Birthday to our fave girl Ruthie! Thank you for having us along your wonderful journey these last two and some years and here’s to many more of them together. I’m SO proud of you and always in awe of how your kindness and love ripples. It’s amazing and so are you. Thank you for always inspiring me to be a better version of myself.

Fans from around the world came together again this year to help raise money in Ruthie’s honour for My Hope Chest, a charity that Ruth supports a lot. We’ve managed to raise 400$ of our 500$ goal so far this year and with that, the grand total fans have raised between last year’s project and this one is almost 1000$! I feel so blessed to be able to be part of such a caring community of fans and thanks to everyone for their time in sharing and donating and helping out.

If you are interested in donating to the project, there are 10 days left: Ruthie’s Birthday Fundraiser – You can also donate to them directly and please consider giving them a follow on their social pages as they’re still a small charity and every follow helps raise more awareness.

ScotWeek thought this to be a wonderful idea and begun to plan not to only to join NYCTW in this event, but also to expand on the idea and offer an entire day of programming set upon celebrating all that ScotWeek and NYC Tartan Week strive to put forth with regards to Scottish culture and it’s peoples – past, present and future.

As the world continues to struggle through the Covid-19 pandemic, many events, including ScotWeek, have found themselves being forced to cancel or postpone in an effort to abide by shelter-in-place orders from city, state and national governments in order to reduce the spread of the virus.

On April 6th, 2020 beginning at 8:00am PST (11:00am EST), we will be broadcasting via Instagram Live (@ScotWeek)  a series of features and interviews featuring our very special ScotWeek guests and friends.  Starting at 12:00PM PST (3:00PM EST) we will then re-broadcast through NYCTW’s as well as our own social media accounts.  Our tentative line-up includes:

★Graham McTavish, actor (Outlander) & ScotWeek co-founder

★Grant O’Rourke, actor (Outlander)

★Louis Fantasia, director & ScotWeek co-founder

★Craig McGinlay, actor (Outlander) – taking questions

BESPOKE PLAYS – a Los Angeles based play reading series – announces Ruth Connell (SUPERNATURAL) will lead the first public reading of HERETICS by playwright Ellie Pyle (Sources), on September 25 at 8pm on The Broadwater Mainstage (1076 Lillian Way, Los Angeles, California 90038) and September 26 at 8pm in the Broadwater Blackbox (6322 Santa Monica Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90038). Tickets can be reserved at:

Directed by Thomas Cunningham, the cast in completed by Ryan McCurdy (Pip’s Island), Rachael Hip-Flores, Aaron Fili (WESTWORLD), Alan Smyth (BETTER THINGS), Elizabeth Rose, and Phinneas Kiyomura.

HERETICS tells the story of Magali, a noblewoman raised to believe that she carries the Magdalene bloodline, and a sacred duty to pass it on. But in 13th century Languedoc, Cathars see procreation as a sin, the Catholic Church burns those “good Christians” by the hundreds, and Troubadours sing that marriage is no impediment to true love. These are just some of the heresies in this stirring meditation on Truth, and how love and faith can reveal it or become its opposition. Part courtly romance, part spiritual allegory, it is based on meticulous research, but refuses to let history get in the way of a good story.

RUTH CONNELL is a Scottish theatre, television and film actress and producer. She is also a former professional dancer and choreographer. Best known for her recurring role as Rowena in the CW series Supernatural. She was nominated as “Best Leading Actress” in the BroadwayWorld Los Angeles Awards (2013) for her portrayal of Mrs. Darling and Captain Hook at the Blank Theatre (Los Angeles) in their award-winning production of Peter Pan; The Boy Who Hated Mothers.
