Show and Tell and the Traverse Theatre Company present
A GAMBLERS GUIDE TO DYING
written and performed by Gary McNair
directed by Gareth Nicolls
Part of Brits Off Broadway at 59E59, April 4-23, 2017
This is the story of one boy’s granddad who won a fortune betting on the 1966 soccer World Cup and, when diagnosed with cancer, gambled it all on living to see the year 2000. An intergenerational tale of what we live for and what we leave behind.
★★★★ "MCNAIR SHINES IN THIS BEAUTIFULLY WRITTEN, DECEPTIVELY SIMPLE, WARMLY COMIC PIECE THAT ACCUMULATES LAYERS OF MEANING THROUGH THE ACT OF STORYTELLING ITSELF. RICH AND EARTHILY FUNNY - A GENUINE PLEASURE" - The Guardian
★★★★ "AN AMUSING AND AFFECTING MONOLOGUE...ONE OF THE HITS OF THE EDINBURGH FRINGE"- The Times, London
