Jack Docherty Nothing But
Sunday 27 March 2022 at 7:30pm
Following a critically acclaimed season at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2021, Jack Docherty, one of Scotland’s favourite comic performers and the BAFTA award winning star of Scot Squad and Absolutely, is delighted to announce that he will be touring in 2022 with his new play Nothing But (Independent’s Top Ten Shows of the Fringe).
Nothing But is a tender, playful, darkly comic tale in which Jack grapples with lost youth, infatuation, fatherhood, sex, secrets and truth.
A love letter to Edinburgh, family and summer rain.
Nothing But is Jack’s highly anticipated return to live performing.
