Fearless Players

After the death of Robert Burns, his wife Jean Armour and mistress Nancy Maclehose finally meet. Female-led theatre company Fearless Players bring an all-female production dedicated to the women behind Scotland’s history. Jean and Nancy inspired some of Burns’ most famous work: after years of songs being written about them, it’s time for their story to be told. Using the well-known music of Robert Burns, woven with original compositions, this new musical gives a voice to the women behind the bard.

60 minutes straight through
A marvellous addition to Scottish theatre. It’s a historical drama about the perils of celebrity, with beautifully nuanced writing and acting, as well as heart-lifting music. It’s also gloriously funny,”
★★★★★ Three Weeks
Armour is an exceptionally mature piece of writing. It’s sentimental without being schmaltzy, and is underscored with a strong, feminist message…
★★★★ The Stage
The emotive range within the score really tugs at the heartstrings, particularly in the moments when the voices overlap and blend in sweet harmony.
★★★★★ Broadway World
Warm and witty musical from Fearless Players… beautifully laced with humour.
