A Voyage Round the Stories of Neil Munro
Written and Directed by John Bett
Original Music by Robert Pettigrew
Starring Jimmy Chisholm as Para Handy
Designed by Annette Gillies
The irrepressible captain of The Vital Spark and his ramshackle crew have been some of Scotland's best-loved characters since they first appeared in print in 1906. It is with huge pleasure then, that Eden Court, along with highland theatre company Open Book Productions announce a brand new, bang up to the minute production of Neil Munro’s hilarious tales of Para Handy and The Vital Spark.
Prepare yourself for a 21st century take on the adventures of captain Para Handy, his mate Dougie, engineer Macphail and cabin-boy Sunny Jim, which travels from a Clydeside breakers yard to the misty lochs of the Highlands. With a cast led by Inverness’ very own Jimmy Chisholm as the eponymous captain, and with a foot-tapping live score performed by a hugely talented cast, Eden Court’s Para Handy promises to be as engaging and entertaining in 2011 as the original stories were more than 100 years ago.
