Bampots. Noun. 1. (Scotland, slang, derogatory) An idiot; an objectionable and foolish person. What’s Scotland without the people? This debut play from Haud Yer Wheesht Theatre explores what it means to be Scottish! From challenging the stereotypes to embracing our flaws you’ll be taken on a tour of our homeland and shown the stories of the bampots that live here! Expect loud music, lots of swearing and high energy as we use a ceilidh rave to tell the stories of the people that make our country. There is truly no better way to experience the Edinburgh Fringe.
