Bob meets Helena in a basement wine bar. He’s a down-on-his luck petty thief and she’s a high-powered lawyer. With a wad of ill-gotten cash in hand and a local gangster on their heels, the unlikely (if hot-for-each-other) couple embark on an adventure-filled midsummer weekend, discovering that there are second chances at life – and love.
A collaboration between red-hot playwright David Greig and Ballboy singer-songwriter Gordon McIntyre, this Scottish version of Once (“delicate melodies sung to acoustic guitars and not the soundtrack of some brassy Broadway tuner” – Variety) is as riotously funny as it is touchingly romantic.
