Plough Boy of the Western World 

Based on the life and work of Robert Burns, this new black comedy, written by the Scottish writer and award-winning journalist Tom Sweeny, follows the bard and his musings. Discover the inspiration for his poetics – his long-suffering wife and so-called muse.  Join actors Mark Claney, Debbie McCormac, Libbie Smyth, and Victoria Gleason for a staged reading, directed by Colin Carnegie. The narrator will guide you through this wry look at Burn’s life including the highs and lows, and including Rab’s sad demise leaving behind his works of poetry and many a bairn. Originally performed as part of the Burns an’ a’ That Festival in Ayr. 

£15/£12 concession.

Age guidance: 16+ (strong language)
