When Scottish Enlightenment philosopher David Hume and Nancy Ord, daughter of the Chief Baron of the Scottish Exchequer, fell in love, the result was an explosive scandal and a doomed relationship.  David Black’s play telling their little-known story returns to Summerhall after a limited run as part of our 2016 Edinburgh Fringe programme.

The performance on Saturday 12 January features an exclusive preview of an aria from Phamie Gow’s forthcoming mini-opera based on the play.
