Written By: Philip Goulding
Directed By: Angela Short

Philip Goulding's bright and breezy stage adaptation of Compton Mackenzie's comedy classic combines rollicking physical theatre, panto and farce, with an array of hilarious and loveable characters. During World War II, the tiny Scottish island of Todday runs out of whisky. When a freighter runs aground nearby during a heavy fog, the islanders are delighted to learn that its cargo consists of 50,000 cases of whisky. When an officious English commanding officer demands return of the liquor, the shopkeeper and his daughters spearhead an island rebellion.
