The Last Burrah Sahibs: Max Scratchman

Thursday 14 September @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Cost: £4 - £5

The Last Burrah Sahibs is a one-hour one-man-show about the old Scottish jute colonies along the Hooghly river in Bengal during the 1960s when it was still possible to walk down Calcutta streets on a Saturday and only hear Scottish accents.

Max Scratchmann was born into this old-style colonial life of luxury in the 1950s long after it was supposed to have ended (British rule ceased in India in 1947!) and then brought ‘home’ to a very different life in Scotland in the mid-1960s.

You can find more information about the event on the Scottish Poetry Library website here.
