Happy Birthday Dear Robert
TWTC were thrilled to be involved in this years official Robert Burns Celebrations in Alloway, Ayrshire. On Sunday 27th January, our actors took to the streets of Alloway and performed our special Burns commission “Happy Birthday Dear Robert”. We took our audience back in time to 25th of January 1796, the day of our national bard’s 37th birthday. When his wife, Jean, banishes him from the house so she can prepare for his birthday celebrations, Burns and his old friend Alexander Cunningham, go on a journey through Alloway, reminiscing on the past, using Burns’ famed works.
TWTC were very proud to be a part of the Alloway 1759 celebrations this year, and hope we can perform in Alloway again soon!
A very big thank you to all our faithful audience walkers who came along on our journey, and enjoyed our traditional Scottish faire prepared by Chef Alison Sykora. The typical Scottish weather did not put our wonderful audience off – Brollies and Burns, what a perfect day!
