A World Premiere Comedy

An American entrepreneur has found the perfect Scottish island on which to build his new golf course. But as secrets — and bodies — are unearthed, the true nature of the island wreaks comic havoc. Artistic Director Christopher Ashley directs the world premiere of acclaimed playwright Arthur Kopit and Anton Dudley's supernatural comedy. Strong language and brief nudity.
