Meeting Jim

20:30, 12 Aug

The captivating story of Jim Haynes, a networker supreme whose open Sunday dinners in Paris are legendary and whose journey from the US to Edinburgh, London and Paris saw him make contacts and friends wherever he travelled. In one lovely scene, he runs through his contact books, all geographically linked. On the way, he inspired and encouraged all those who crossed his path. This charismatic man – now in his eighties – has started the Traverse theatre in 1963, participated in the creation of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and has been a regular at Edinburgh’s festivals for years.
