Darkly comic story of lost love and youth

 

About the show:

Nothing But is the story of Jack putting on a show at the 2018 Edinburgh Festival in the hope of re-connecting with an American woman he had a brief romance with almost thirty years ago. It’s a story of misplaced desire and the impossibility of recapturing one’s youth. It plays with and deconstructs the form of rom-coms, and ultimately becomes a love story, not about Jack and his lost love, but between Jack and his daughter. It is also a love letter to Jack’s home town of Edinburgh. Set against the once -yearly bacchanal of the festival, when the city throws off its conservative skin and anything seems possible. It’s a tender, playful, darkly comic story, where Jack grapples with lost youth, love, fatherhood, sex, secrets and truth.
