This riotous adaptation, by Tweed Theatre, is set in 1955 as touring theatre company the Pallas Players are staging Compton Mackenzie’s classic tale Whisky Galore. Seven players perform thirty roles. Quick changes, fake facial furniture, bicycles, bird callers and complex props conspire to manufacture mayhem.
The Players rise above it all to transport us to the Scottish islands of Great and Little Todday where, in the middle of a whisky shortage, a ship carrying 50,000 bottles of uisge beatha is wrecked offshore. Can the Home Guard stop the islanders slaking their thirst?
