With Gavin Paul as Robert Burns

As part of the Burns Unbroke festival, Rough Cut brings you Gavin Paul’s intimate portrait of an unfamiliar Burns for the 21st century.
Premiered to critical acclaim on the 2010 Fringe, Robert Burns: Rough Cut is based on Donald Smith’s controversial novel ‘Between Ourselves’.  Recreating Burns’s lost (or unwritten) diaries it tells the story of his short, but pivotal stay in Edinburgh.  Robert Burns’s six months in the capital saw him at full creative stretch, but in crisis and contradiction.  Robert Burns: Rough Cut presents the man behind the myth.

Robert Burns: Rough Cut was shortlisted for the Scottish Arts Club Award at the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe
