THE ELECTRIFYING MR JOHNSTON
A new play about one of Scotland’s great unsung heroes, Tom Johnston, once described by Churchill as the ‘King of Scotland’, focusing on his struggles to bring “light to the glens.” Through incredible feats of engineering and political manoeuvring, he sought to transform the lives of everyone in the north of Scotland by bringing hydroelectric power to the Highlands & Islands.
A story of power-and the struggle for it.
Reproduction of the Tom Johnston portrait by kind permission of Scottish Friendly Assurance.
An informal programme of script-in-hand play readings of new plays and works-in-progress.
Readings, encounters, questions & answers, feedback and chat offer audiences the chance to be part of and enjoy the fun of the creative process.
This drama performance resulted from a bite size activity that Mull Theatre ran at Rockfield last year. They are bringing the performance to Appin and Benderloch, as well as Corran Halls on Saturday 9th. After the show they will be running another bite size session with reading from new plays and work in progress. There will be opportunities for questions input etc so it would be great to get the word out to as many drama folk as possible.
Appin Village Hall Tuesday 12th February at 7.30
Benderloch Village Hall Wednesday 13th February at 7.30
Tickets £12 of £10 for under 26 years
