The company’s first touring show. Playing all round the country in village halls, gymnasiums and the newly opened Tron Theatre. Based on the classic Scottish novel by George Douglas Brown. The story of John Gourlay, small town despot and merchant, destroyed by his small town rival and by the small town itself. A peculiarly Scottish theme, interpreted in the grand manner of Greek Tragedy ( the author George Douglas Brown was himself a classics scholar) with daredevil physicality, men dancing with men, live music and Brechtian songs, all in a wonderful, demotic Scots.
