A Show of Two Halves (Somethings Old, Somethings New)
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Ranging from the bittersweet to the rude and raunchy, Scotland's former national poet and recent recipient of the Queen's Gold Medal for Poetry weaves a spellbinding and beguiling show, mixing poems and monologues and accompanied by the witty, soulful saxophone of Steve Kettley. 'An inspirational force in British poetry. Funny, feisty, full of feeling, a fantastic performer' (Carol Ann Duffy, Poet Laureate). 'Brilliant, raucous and scabrously funny' (Sunday Times). 'Funny, frank and frisky' (Scotsman).
