Whisky Galore

Wed 16 May–Sat 2 Jun

Oldham Coliseum Theatre, Hull Truck Theatre and New Vic Theatre present a Pallas Players production

By Compton Mackenzie
Adapted by Philip Goulding
Directed by Kevin Shaw

The islanders of Great and Little Todday are dismaye d to find their whisky supply dwindling as the government diverts the precious stuff tothe Americans. Relief seems to be at hand when a 50,000 bottle cargoshipwrecks close by, until stuffy Paul Waggot takes it upon himself toprevent 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.
