A New Play by David Colvin
Directed by Tom Freeman
The National Piping Centre
Sunday 19th August (16.00)
“9 Notes! What can I do with 9 notes? Let’s see.”
Thunderstruck is the true story of Gordon Duncan; one of the greatest bagpipers who ever lived. An interactive, one man theatrical extravaganza that explores the history, strict traditions and culture surrounding bagpipe music and how one man rocked the bagpiping world to its’ core, and changed the life of one young piper, forever. It is an original and exciting journey through a world lesser known by the average audience member, featuring a host of characters and a live multi-instrumentalist three piece band. Take whatever romantic notion you have about bagpipes and leave them at the door.
Tickets: £15 (£12.50 concessions) – subject to booking fee
