Mon, 24 September, 2018 — Sat, 29 September, 2018

By John Bett | Directed By John Bett

Cast: Gordon Cree & John Jack

Presented in classic revue format, Tipping The Hat provides a different lunchtime experience by bringing the satirical songs of Michael Flanders and Donald Swann, a stage duo of the fifties and sixties, to a contemporary audience. Two men and a piano invite you to enjoy some silliness, be touched by elegant sadness, savour humanity, and revel in delicious wit.

Produced in association with the Traverse
