‘WHARE GHAISTS AND HOULETS NIGHTLY CRY’
‘Tam O’ Shanter, Tales & Whisky’ is a comic celebration of the ‘Gothic’ poems of Robert Burns. Aye. You’ll see Stolen Elephant Theatre perform ‘Tam O’ Shanter’, ‘Death and Dr Hornbook’ and ‘Address to the Deil’. Expect to encounter Witches and Death. And the De’il himself! We’ll also be telling comic versions of the Scottish folk tales ‘The Witch of Fife’ and ‘The Haunted Ships’. AND Douglas McQueen Hunter and Douglas Caird from The Court of Equity will be performing several Burns’ songs.
‘Tam O’ Shanter’ is the undoubted masterpiece of Scotland’s National Poet. It tells the tale of a drunken farmer, hoofing it home through the wilds on a stormy evening. Not exactly a bright idea with Witches being on the loose. ‘Death and Dr Hornbook’ tells of an unexpected run-in with Death out on a barren moor. Rather worryingly, Death is carrying an awful scythe. Whilst ‘Address to the De’il’ is an out and out rant at the De’il himself . . .
So come join Stolen Elephant Theatre for an evening of the supernatural. In 'The Witch of Fife' and 'The Haunted Ships' there'll be Broonies, Elves, Fairies, and Kelpies. Expect to laugh and hoot, and for the odd shiver to go a running down your spine!
