"Whisky Galore" was dramatised by James Scotland from the novel by Compton Mackenzie. This was our third production of the play: the others were at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 1985 and 1993.

The setting is the islands of Great and Little Todday in the Outer Hebrides, in the spring of 1942.

Our May 2005 production was directed by Colin Peter.
