A Highland Famine

THE HIGHLAND FAMINE

Local historian, Willie Orr, Benderloch, has brought the trials and tribulations of the Great Famine in the middle of the 1800’s to life, in a new play to be staged this week.

Set on the Ross of Mull, the play tells the story of the people from a now lost township, describing the politics and humanity, and the inhumanity, that they experienced.

The play is being performed by the Argyll Youth Theatre, including several young people from Ardchattan, at Corran Halls, Oban on Thursday 7th January, Friday 8th January, and Saturday 9th January 2010

Tickets are only £7 for adults and £5 for concessions, available from Corran Halls Box Office 01631 567333, and House and Home.

update – Thursdays performance has been cancelled
