OUR daily briefing gives you the run-down on the most exciting cultural events going on in Scotland this evening
MUSIC: HUNTER HAYES
American country artist Hunter Hayes is performing at the ABC in Glasgow as part of his Let’s Be Crazier tour.
The 22-year-old has already been nominated four times for a Grammy, won the Country Music Awards (CMA) New Artist of the Year, and is the youngest male to top the Billboard Hot Country sound chart, and is bringing that Southern charm here.
THEATRE: BRAVE NEW WORLD
The world premier adaptation of Brave New World is making its debut at the King’s Theatre in Edinburgh.
Directed by James Dacre, find yourself transported into a world where people are always happy and getting what they want, and love and empathy have given way to lust and pleasure. The fabric of this community is threatened when Lenina learns the pain of love and rises up against the World State.
Adapted by playwright Dawn King with original background score by These New Puritans.
King’s Theatre, Edinburgh
