Yippe ki-yay, ke-mo sah-bee!
Join John McClane, rogue cop trapped in a fifty-storey skyscraper on Christmas Eve with a band of ruthless terrorists and armed only with five…poets?!
The Scottish Poetry Library is proud to present its Christmas event, Die Bard, a poetic rendering of the classic action-slash-Christmas movie Die Hard. Last year, we transformed It’s A Wonderful Life into a sequence of newly commissioned poems, and this year we’re repeating the trick with Bruce Willis’ finest moment.
Break out your vests take off your shoes in the company of poets Alyson Kissner, Nadia Freeman, Rob Mackenzie, Ross McCleary and Hannah Lavery. Extra points are awarded to those who come dressed as a yuppie, terrorist or McClane himself! Welcome to the party, pal!!!
