Wednesday 30th January, 7.30pm.
Heartbroken author Ariel 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’d 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 new comedy proves that love and relationships haven’t changed that much in 200 years after all.
