A Gambler’s Guide To Dying


What are the odds of living an extraordinary life?

The story of one boy’s granddad who won a fortune betting on the 1966 World Cup and, when diagnosed with cancer, gambled it all on living to see the year 2000. An intergenerational tale of what we live for and what we leave behind.

This show will premier at The Traverse during the Edinburgh Festival as part of the Made in Scotland program and is McNair’s follow up to last year’s award-winning five-star show Donald Robertson is Not a Stand-Up Comedian.
