And our next production is....
You've guessed it. It's "Whisky Galore" galore! We're returning to one of our previous triumphs, James Scotland's hilarious stage version of Compton Mackenzie's novel "Whisky Galore".
If you haven't read the book, seen the play, or seen either of the movies, here's the plot:
The tiny Scots Island of Todday suffers from a wartime whisky shortage. Luck of luck, a ship full of the precious liquid is wrecked on a reef. The islanders conspire to smuggle the whisky off the ship right under the noses of the pesky British revenue officials. Numerous clever comic complications occur before the happy ending -- which, we are told by the narrator, was not so happy once all the whisky was consumed.
When's it on?
We'll be performing "Whisky Galore!" on the Ayr Gaiety stage from Thursday 22nd to Saturday 24th March 2018 including, by popular demand, an added matinee on the Saturday. The show starts at 7.30 each evening, and 2.00 on the Saturday matinee.
