18th century romance meets 21st century dating in this critically-acclaimed hit comedy drama by Gillian Duffy. An intimate date with the writer of Auld Lang Syne, which covers everything from love, dating, breakups — & most importantly, ghosting!
Heartbroken author Emily Winters takes herself away to her aunt’s old cottage in Ayrshire, Scotland, to get over her cheating ex.
As she celebrates Burns night alone (wishing that the right man would show up), she gets a visitation slightly different than what she had hoped for – the ghost of Rabbie Burns appears to give her some dating advice… & he knows what he’s talking about!
Featuring the great songs & poems of Robert Burns, such as My Love is Like a Red Red Rose, Ae Fond Kiss, Charlie is my Darlin & of course... Auld Lang Syne, this hilarious comedy proves that love & relationships haven’t changed that much in 200 years after all.
