Best Of Productions The Next Big Thing



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?
