IT’S the hot ticket of the week in the Capital right now. Demand for seats to see Tim Barrow’s Neither God Nor Angel has been so great that extra seats have just been released for each performance.
The play, part of the Traverse Theatre’s A Play, A Pie and A Pint Season stars Jimmy Chisholm and Gavin Jon Wright.
On 4 April, 1603, James VI, King of Scots, spends his final night in Holyrood before journeying south to claim the English crown, but after several bottles of wine he’s having second thoughts.
He needs advice, political insight and reassurance. He gets William - a street wise servant.
When two nations want you, what’s a King to do?”
Neither God Nor Angel, Traverse Theatre, Cambridge Street, until Saturday, 1pm, and Friday, 7pm, £12.50 (inc. pie and pint), 0131-228 1404
KING OF JAZZ
GRAMMY Award-winning Gregory Porter tours to the Festival Theatre this Sunday.
The jazz and soul singing sensation continues to perform to sell-out audiences across the world, thanks to his Grammy- winning album Liquid Spirit, which in the UK alone has remained in the official album charts for 80 weeks, since its release.
On the back of a steaming set at Glastonbury, Porter was hailed the new ’king of jazz’ and a ‘leader of the pack,’ being compared with greats such as Nat King Cole and Marvin Gaye. Judge for yourself at the Festival Theatre.
Gregory Porter, Festival Theatre, Nicolson Street, Sunday, 7.30pm, £31-£41, 0131-529 6000
