Thunderstruck Pay What You Can: £15, £12, £10

David Colvin's award-winning production focuses on Gordon Duncan and how he changed the life of one young piper from Fife.

Described as ‘Sensationally epic and brutally intimate', this international award-winning production immerses you in the legacy and mythology of Gordon Duncan, a Pitlochry bin man, who flew beyond the summit of his art to change Scottish music forever. This is the story of a tortured soul, but are the demons his or Scotland's?

Take whatever romantic notions you have of the bagpipes and leave them at the door.

“An unbelievable, seismic performance that brings together comedy, drama and some outstanding musical talent… Hilarious and dramatic in equal measure, Thunderstruck is quite unlike anything else.” – Edinburgh Fringe 2021, Part of Scotland's Year of Stories 2022

Running time: 1h 15m
Ages: 13+ (strong language throughout)
