“Doorways in Drumorty”

Text from the play’s promotional graphic (upper right):

‘Some folk in this toon are terrible for gossipin, ye ken’

Mike Gibb’s smash-hit Scottish play based on Lorna Moon’s short stories. Directed by Andy Corelli.

Set in a 1920s gisspy, rural Aberdeenshire community, this witty play is based on a book of short stories by Strichen-born Lorna Moon. Laugh-out-loud funny yet steering through a sharply satirical observation of the personal agonies of the town’s inhabitants beset by the strict observance of moral codes and prohibitions. This is a new prodution of Mike Gibb’s acclaimed play first performed in 2010 to sold-out audiences. Amongst the dozen other musicals and plays Mike has written is Outlander the Musical.

  1. Do you think it would be too much to ask that you concentrate on finishing the books and not end up being like George RR Martin as his last book hasn’t come out and the series is at its final season? I mean, so many distractions, you should sit down and finish writing the books. We’ve waited for way too long already.

    • Can’t believe I’m seeing this. Maria, you don’t deserve to read the next book! Seriously, if you can’t say something pleasant then why even bother. Get a life, Diana has one beyond Outlander. I think myself privelaged to read such wonderful books that have been so well written. Nice one Loretta!
