The Tobacco Merchant's Lawyer

OPENING / CLOSING DATES
Closed

WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

1780. Glasgow is booming, but the American war is looming, and the city’s wealth is dependent on the import and export of American tobacco. Can the great port survive? However, this pressing question is NOT addressed by Enoch Dalmellington, Virginia Street. He is more concerned about marrying off his dreich pious humourless daughter Euphemia, being able to afford his pew at the Tron Kirk, and what to do about Mistress Zapata’s scurrilous predictions about Glasgow in 2009. Apparently "women will be attending university, the poor will all have water closets and his beloved Virginia Street will become a hotbed of sodomy!"

Edinburgh Fringe Festival. This event takes place at New Town Theatre (Venue 7), at Freemason's Hall, George Street EH2 3DH
