Catch the Scot Squad star live on Tour this Spring

“HUGELY ENGAGING AND BEAUTIFULLY-SHAPED…THERE’S NO GAINSAYING THE SHEER CRAFT AND SKILL WITH WHICH HE TELLS HIS TALE” ★ ★ The Scotsman

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 on tour with his play Nothing But (Independent’s Top Ten Shows of the Fringe).

“SHOT THROUGH WITH A SELF-EFFACING, SELF-AWARE WIT, EMOTIONAL HONESTY AND INTELLIGENT ANALYSIS OF HOW TIME BOTH CHANGES US IN MIND AND BODY…A MASTERFUL PIECE OF STORYTELLING THAT HAS THE AUDIENCE HANGING ON EVERY WORD.”  ★ Chortle

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 family, the Fringe and summer rain.
