The Electrifying Mr Johnston

Mull Theatre

Monday 04 March, 7.30pm

The world premiere by Robert Dawson Scott

plus BITE-SIZE (script-in-hand play excerpts)

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 hydro-electric power to the Highlands & Islands.

A story of power-and the struggle for it.


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.
