Lila plays Peggy Macroon, George Campbell, Mr Brown, Drooby and Paddy in Whisky Galore: an all-female co-production between Hull Truck, New Vic and Oldham Coliseum.
“It’s 1955 and the Pallas Players, an all-female theatre company, are putting on a play… Whisky Galore.
They take us back to 1943 and the Scottish islands of Great Todday and Little Todday, where disaster has struck! The whisky supply has dried up because of the War and tensions are running high.
Relief comes when a ship carrying 50,000 cases of whisky is wrecked just offshore. Then it’s every islander for themselves as they try to ‘save’ as many bottles as possible before snooty Mr Waggett of the Home Guard can put a stop to their fun.
This new adaptation is a tribute to the feisty all-female touring theatre companies of the post-war years. Join the Pallas Players as they breathe fresh life into the hilarious characters of Compton Mackenzie’s comedy classic.”
