Red, Red Rose Street: Rabbie

Captivate Theatre

This event is part of the Red, Red Rose Street festival.

Fresh from their success in the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Captivate Theatre, the Edinburgh based award winning theatre company, presents ‘Rabbie’ by one of Scotland’s leading dramatists and three times Fringe First award winner, the late Andrew Dallmeyer.  The musical distils the essence of Burns’ life and his paradoxical personality through his poetry, music and the witty and poignant words of Dallmeyer.

Come join with us to ‘tak a cup of kindness’ and celebrate the life of Robert Burns, Scotland’s ploughman poet , saintly sinner and genius.


“A unique opportunity for the young, and not so young, from all over the world to reflect on the life, words and music of our greatest poet - and national treasure.” (Professor David Purdie, editor of the Burns’ Encyclopaedia)

‘Captivate’s production of Les Mis blows every other musical at the Fringe completely out of the water.’ (TheReviewsHub)
