The Ghosting of Rabbie Burns on Thursday 10th February 2022
Written by Gillian Duffy and directed by Jimmy Chisholm.
Due to illness the play has been re-cast. This means the date has been changed to Thursday 10th February.
Heartbroken author Emily Winters takes herself away to her aunt’s old cottage in Ayrshire 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 Rabbie 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 hilarious comedy proves that love and relationships haven’t changed that much in 200 years after all.
