The Whisky Anorak's 'Whisky Theatre', blurs the lines between humorous storytelling and a unique whisky tasting. Following on from the success of his show in last year’s Festival Fringe, (Bad Boys), the Whisky Anorak presents a new one-man show - The Art of Reduction and the Distillation of Humanity.
For the 2015 Festival, the Whisky Anorak re-tells the story of 20th Century whisky while exploring profound counter culture events over the same period. In essence its an abridged but ambitious history lesson - the Whisky Anorak way.
The Whisky Anorak is John Mark Di Ciacca. He has now written four original Whisky Theatres for four successive Festivals. His claim to whisky fame is to have led the inaugural tasting of the Monte Carlo Whisky Society at the Hotel de Paris in 2012 in the presence of HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco.
The Art of Reduction and the Distillation of Humanity takes place at Venue 42, The Board Room of Jenner’s Department Store, on Princes Street. The Board Room is off limits out side Festival time and requires the audience to be escorted behind the scenes of Edinburgh's most famous department store.
There are 15 shows running from 11th August through to 30th August at 5.15pm ( but for 3 afternoon shows at 2.15pm on 22nd, 27th and 30th August). Tickets cost £15.00 (cons. £13.00) and the show lasts for around one and a half hours.
The Whisky Anorak will also be performing his successful 2014 show Bad Boys on 20th and 27th August at 5.15pm, also at Venue 42.
