The Ghosting of Rabbie Burns By Gillian Duffy
***** ‘Outstanding’ – Get Your Coats On // ***** ‘Magical’ – London Fringe Theatre Review
Time for the Lothario ghost of Scotland’s Bard to learn some lessons in modern love…and ghosting!
18th Century Romance meets 21st Century Dating in this critically-acclaimed comedy drama by Gillian Duffy. An intimate date with the writer of Auld Land Syne, which includes everything from love, dating, breakups and, most importantly, ghosting – the perfect Halloween night out!
Heartbroken author Emily Winters takes herself away to her aunt’s old cottage in Ayrshire, Scotland, to get over her cheating ex. As she celebrates Burns night alone (wishing that the right man would show up), she gets a visitation slightly different than what she had hoped for. The ghost of Robert Burns
appears to give her some dating advice – and he knows what he’s talking about.
Featuring the great songs and poems of Burns, such as ‘My Love is Like a Red Red Rose’, ‘Ae Fond Kiss’, ‘Charlie is my Darlin’ and of course ‘Auld Lang Syne’, this hit comedy proves that love and relationships haven’t changed that much in 200 years after all.
