The Electrifying Mr Johnston by Robert Dawson Scott

The story of power – and the struggle for it – is a new play about Tom Johnston, one of Scotland’s great unsung heroes and the man who, through incredible feats of engineering, introduced hydro-electric power and changed the Highlands forever.

This political and human story sees Johnston the radical thinker, land reformer and scourge of the establishment vying with Highland landowners for access to their land to transform the lives of people in rural communities who, until as late as the 1950s, depended on oil lamps.
