A refreshing change from the traditional Burns supper format. An entertaining insight making great use of original letters to and from Burns. Songs and poems interwoven to give an account of the Bard’s works. This is well balanced interpretation of Robbie Burns’ life story which all audiences of all ages will learn from and enjoy.
Miss Helen Adam, Retired Carnoustie High School Teacher of English
An interesting new take on the Life of Robert Burns as seen through the eyes of the Bard himself. The three acts gives one a clear insight into his personality and thinking during different stages of his short life.
Dr Hamish Leslie, Fintry, Stirlingshire
Audiences remark on how much this theatrical presentation adds to their knowledge of Burns. Nicely balanced content of song, poetry and narrative. The characters in Burns life come alive. All students of Robert Burns works should see this.
Mr Jim Bates, Ilfracombe, North Devon, England
This presentation of Burns Life is a must for all school children in Scotland and of Scottish descent to experience. The beauty about the format of this work is that it can be read or spoken, acted or not and with or without costume, props and staging. Ideal for any group including schools.
Mr John Knox, Admirer of the Bard and established speaker at Burns’ Suppers
Over the years I have taken an active part in Burns’ Suppers not only in Scotland but around the world and I can honestly say my participation in this piece not only gave me an added knowledge of the Bard but took me on an emotional journey through his life.
Mr Rodger Brunton. Singer/actor and Director/Producer of Carnoustie Musical Society
A well researched stage presentation about Robbie Burns with a nice mix of his well-known material alongside lots of interesting facts which we rarely hear about. Ihave directed productions of this piece and received positive feedback from the actors and audiences alike.
