Myrtle Throgmorton, Ancient Heckler
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Game old trout and enthusiast for all things Scottish, Myrtle offers a lifetime of observations on many splendid things: love, comedy, the demise of the gusset, Rabbie Burns, decrepitude and pimping your Zimmer to list but a few. More sit-down than stand-up, Myrtles not inconsiderable years are wondrously balanced by the youthful vigour of dancer Gordon Raeburn and musician Sam Williams. Each day a surprise guest joins Myrtle for afternoon tea, every one a delight. (Consult Twitter and Facebook for details.) Miss Throgmorton appears by arrangement with Jennie Campbell/Chalmers. Directed by David Jackson Young.
