    The Rhum Plants

    Dates:Sat 2 Jul Location:Brodie Castle

    Comedy based on the unlikely but true story of botanical fraud on the Island of Rum.

    Details

    A fast paced comedy based on the unlikely but true story of botanical fraud on the island of Rum. In the 1940s, the botanical world was rocked by the discovery of many rare plants on the island of Rum by Professor John Heslop Harrison. The trouble was, this ambitious working class academic had been making far too many similar discoveries over the previous decade to be credible. The botanical elite despatched John Raven – classical scholar and botanist of note – to Rum to investigate. They suspected the Prof had been planting out rare plants and passing them off as genuine discoveries. The play is a tale about deception, greed, class, ambition and arrogance with some gratuitous lust and cross-dressing thrown in – featuring false woolly knitted beards and long-john onesies. Written by Inverness-based Phil Baarda and directed by Dave Smith (co-writer of many top notch plays including Whisky Kisses - on last summer at the Pitlochry Festival theatre - Who Bares Wins, and Accidental Death of an Accordionist, to name only a few) it is sure to entertain.

    Ticket price includes a wee dram and a taste of shortbread, two of Moray's finest products. Thanks go to our sponsors, Glen Moray for their Speyside single malt whisky and Walkers of Aberlour.
