The Ghosting of Rabbie Burns is a new comedy by writer Gillian Duffy, and stars BAA’s James Mackenzie and Morna Young.
Heartbroken author Ariel Winters takes herself away to her aunt’s old cottage in Ayrshire to get over her cheating ex. As she celebrates Burns night alone, wishing that the right man would show up, she gets a visitation slightly different than what she’d hoped for. The ghost of Rabbie Burns appears to give her some dating advice – and he knows what he’s talking about!
Featuring the great songs and poems of Burns, such as ‘My Love is Like a Red Red Rose’, ‘Ae Fond Kiss’, ‘Charlie is my Darlin’ and of course ‘Auld Lang Syne’, this hilarious new comedy proves that love and relationships haven’t changed that much in 200 years after all.
The show runs from 19th January to 2nd February at venues around Scotland – for tickets and more information, click here

The Empty Charcoal Box
Oran Mor’s hugely popular Play, Pie and Pint returns for it’s Autumn season on 28th August 2017, opening with The Empty Charcoal Box by Stuart Hepburn and featuring James Mackenzie.
“The Empty Charcoal Box” is the tragi-comic story of Billy Brewster and his two best friends, Eddie and Deansy. It tells of how a seemingly inconsequential event on their last day at school 45 years in the past has had a life-changing impact on all of them.
Now at the age of 60, the trio are confronted with that age old question which illuminates the path to wisdom. Should they look backwards to try to undo their mistakes, or forwards and try not to repeat them?
Their friendship, happiness and ultimately their lives will depend on making the right choice.
28th August – 2nd September 2017 – Oran Mor, Glasgow
