A Gambler's Guide to Dying

What are the odds of living an extraordinary life? This is 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. Gary McNair and director Gareth Nicholls return to the Traverse after last year's award-winning, five star show A Gamblers Guide To Dying.
