Whisky Galore

7th - 14th December 2019

It's 1955 and the Pallas Players, an all-female theatre company, are putting on a play. They show us how the islanders of Great and Little Todday are dismayed to find their whisky supply dwindling as the government diverts the precious stuff to the Americans. Relief seems to be at hand when a 50,000 bottle cargo shipwrecks close by, until stuffy Paul Waggot takes it upon himself to prevent them taking advantage of their good fortune.

This new adaptation is a tribute to the feisty, fearless all-female touring companies of the post-war years. Witness the Pallas Players as they play all the hilarious characters from Mackenzie's tale in an innovative and beguiling play that breathes fresh life into a well-loved masterpiece.
