A Man's A Man

  • The Stand's New Town Theatre 96 George Street Edinburgh United Kingdom (map)

A refreshing take on the life-story of Scotland’s greatest poet Robert Burns.

A captivating, full-length musical play with an original score, created by Martin Franssen and Rod Grant, portrays Burns in all his colourful and contradictory glory.

Burns’ autobiographical works are placed in new musical settings and follow the poet from humble beginnings in Ayrshire to his tragic early death in Dumfries, via the stardom, adulation and bright lights of Edinburgh.

A truly moving ninety minutes which ‘will leave you emotionally wrought, entertained, educated and enchanted; the whole performance oozes brilliance’.
