'What an egregious folly it is for a man of my years to attach himself too strongly to one of yours - I know the tear will be in your eye when you read this, as it is in mine when I write it.'
The forgotten story of the impossible relationship between David Hume and society beauty Nancy Ord was first performed at the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe. Written for actor Kelly Burke by David Black.
Q&A includes refreshments.
A full accessibility guide is available at www.accessibilityguides.org.
We provide a sensory map of the building to help visitors identify areas with changes in light, smells and noise. It locates seating areas and less crowded, quieter spaces. Printed copies are available from the front desk at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery.
