Literary and performance talent on the cheap
Why would you bother forking out your last twenty quid for a probably patchy big-name comedian when you can see the cream of Scotland’s literary and performance talent, live, for less than the price of a fish supper?
The increasingly ubiquitous novelist/playwright/whatever Alan Bissett hosts this sparky new performance night, with big names like AL Kennedy, Tam Dean Burn, Rodge Glass, Ewan Morrison, Kevin Williamson, and Iain Heggie all performing new work, and emergent acts like writer Anneliese Mackintosh and Glasgow indie-folkers Maple Leaves thrown in for good measure. Look out for last minute additions to the lineup on the Bletherheads Facebook group.
