Description

RLS is synonymous with Edinburgh. Acclaimed musical duo Neil Adam and Judy Turner present the wit and wisdom, the adventures and heartbreaks of the beloved author of Treasure Island, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde and more. Come travel with him from Scotland to California, then across the Pacific to his final home in Samoa. An intimate, acoustic event. 'This is a beautifully engaging performance, in words, music, and images. The audience is informed and entertained in equal measure: it’s as if we've been invited into a welcoming sitting room' (Gerda Stevenson).
