“A man’s a man for a’ that?”… “A’ whit, Rabbie?”

As part of the Burns Unbroke festival, the “fiercely curious” (The Herald) young theatre company Wonder Fools present the first performance of a new work in development, a contemporary response to the work of Robert Burns. Using a blend of character driven narratives, Scots language and poetic text the performance examines the differences and challenges we face as a society in order to build a new tomorrow.

“What makes a man a man in this post-Brexit, pre-apocalyptic island that we call home? What makes us, us? A her, a her? A he, a he? A they, a they?

What makes us, us is a complex political question in Scotland. In Britain. In Europe. Post-referendum(s). But we promise you this show isn’t about all that. It’s about us.

It’s a story about people.
