Lady and the Poet | Ayrshire Trilogy | Jill Korn | Ajay Tambe

An Ayrshire Trilogy Dedicated to People in Scotland : Originally written by James Miller for performance in the village of Dunlop, it was adapted for audio by Jill Korn. Robert Burns is Scotland’s national poet and is famous for his poems and songs across the world. In 1786 he sent a copy of his first book of poems to an elderly widow called Mrs Frances Dunlop and they wrote to each other for almost 10 years. She advised and supported Burns. He married Jean Armour who loved him but he had many lovers. Burns was a republican who supported the French Revolution as well as the execution of the French King and Queen. Mrs Dunlop was against this and she stopped writing to Burns, refusing to answer his letters. He died in poverty and it is not known whether Frances Dunlop answered his final letter to her. This is a complex play consisting of narration, songs by Robert Burns, extracts from real letters and dramatic scenes.
