Best Of Productions

John Lennon spent his Scottish boyhood holidays in Durness, Sutherland: not fake news! This thoughtful, comic fable of modern Scotland, adapted from the novel by Scottish Government minister Michael Russell, asks a million-dollar question: as big business closes in, what can the small, local community do to protect the hidden tourist gold mine Lennon left behind? Fringe First nominee Alex Howarth directs the professional cast in a fast-moving production, featuring a virtual performance by Jane McCarry (Still Game) and live samples of top Beatles tunes. Original and funny, this new play ponders: what’s next for Scotland?

Age category: 14+

I thought this was a blast: a script of real intelligence, cleverly cast, using subtle humour and the lyrics of John Lennon to explore a question that's otherwise hard to ask just now - what does it actually mean to be Scottish? Looks for answers in Durness. Imagine.

Really enjoyed this on Saturday night - new Scottish drama with music, comedy, makes you think, very professional. Friends went on Monday night and loved it too.
