Iain Stirling – At Home (Avalon Promotions)

By | Published on Tuesday 6 August 2013

Edinburgh born Iain Stirling looks at the idea of ‘home’ and what it means to us. He explores the idea through his experience of being an outsider in London – where he finds conversation far from his customary swear-every-second-word Scots’ dialogue, and where nobody thinks about stealing the set of ladders from his neighbours’ front garden. Through self-ridicule and brutal honesty, Iain comically brings to light what it means to be twenty-something and suddenly thrown into a form of adulthood. If you’re Edinburgh born or have the tendency to use “barry” as a term of approval – you’ll have plenty to relate to in this naturally raw and honest comedy show.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 25 August, 7.30pm.
