Baxter vs the Bookies – starring Andy Linden – Edinburgh Preview

17th & 18th July 7.30pm £7

What’s the difference between saying your prayers in church and saying them at the racecourse? At the racecourse, you mean it!
The bets are laid, we’re under starter’s orders and we’re off! The fluctuating fortunes of Baxter, an ageing old-fashioned horse-racing tipster, pitting himself against the firepower of the Bookies. A one-man play adapted from the books by Roy Granville, starring Actor Andy Linden (Harry Potter, Count Arthur Strong, The Business) and directed by Huw Thomas.
Baxter is an old-school horse racing tipster, a true lover of racing, basing his tips on contacts, watching races and understanding horses. He’s an anachronism in the modern world of computers stats, flashy websites and online gambling. He dreams of one day having a great win and bashing the Bookies, his nemesis, who seem to hold
all the power.
But let’s face it, no one ever beats the Bookies. Do they?

Lighting and Sound by Daniel Maxted.
