Free tickets to Burns show for kilt wearers

By | Published on Monday 30 July 2012


Edinburgh-based Communicado Theatre have announced that anyone who attends their production of ‘Tam O’Shanter’ from 2-9 Aug in a kilt will get themselves a free ticket.

Based on the Burns poem of the same name, though taking in some of the poet’s other work and themes too, the show has had rave reviews in the past, and is playing at midday most days this Festival at Assembly Hall. Free tickets, while stocks last, will be distributed to kilted Fringe-goers who report to the Assembly Hall box office at 11.30am between 2-9 Aug.

Director Gerry Mulgrew told ThreeWeeks: “This is a hell of a romp and what better way to get the audience in the mood than to have the swirl of the kilt around the auditorium. Whilst our actors will be following the traditional course of underwear for the production, we shall not be inspecting audience members to make sure they follow suit”.
