THE ELECTRIFYING MR JOHNSTON

Mull Theatre return to Oban with a double-bill, The Electrifying Mr Jonston plus BITE-SIZE, featuring new works in progress.

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.

BITE-SIZE

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.

Tickets for the double bill are £12 and on sale now from the Corran Halls box office, or the link below.
