The islanders of Great and Little Todday are dismayed to find their whisky supply dwindling as the UK government diverts the precious stuff to the Americans, in an attempt to bribe them into supporting the British war effort. When the whisky runs out completely it seems like the end of the world, until a cargo of 50,000 bottles is shipwrecked nearby. Conflict is guaranteed, however, with the arrival of the Home Guard trying to prevent the thirsty islanders from taking advantage of their apparent good fortune.

This new production, set in 1955, is a tribute to the feisty, fearless all-female theatre companies of the post-war years and centres around The Palla Players - under the direction of the redoubtable Flora Bellerby - as they play all the hilarious characters in Mackenzie’s comedy classic.
