Following two seasons of the original Rebus show in Edinburgh and the triumphant debut of CrimeWarrior at Pleasance last year which was followed by a national tour, The List’s 2006 Best Breakthrough Act Richard Thomson is back with more riotous escapades from the not-so-quick-witted crime-fighting phenomenon.

McTaggart’s range of vice-cracking methods are presented to the audience in a highly informative talk, including an autopsy technique that will make your eyes water and a particularly arresting interview method.

Don’t miss the opportunity to see McTaggart scaling the heights of criminal incompetence in the line of duty only he can attain. Or the chance to witness Thomson’s unforgettable talent for character comedy from his mastery of physical performance to unpredictable and riotous audience interaction.

As the tale of McTaggart’s latest grisly case is recounted, the plot is thickened by some of Ecclefechan’s other residents and by Rebus’ killer instinct with the ladies. Ginger crime impresario, Gordon Stewart hasn’t had a good year. And Margaret Sutherland, local beauty, leaves us in no doubt that she would like to sample all the delights of Ecclefechan. All this combined with ingenious setting and props and an action sequence to make Jack Bauer proud, makes Rebus McTaggart: Crime Warrior an outlandish, fast-paced treat that is not for the faint-hearted.

Join us in Ecclefechan - there’s been a murder.

 

“The incredibly quick-witted Thomson
deserves to become a big hit.” **** Metro
