The Trial of James Kirkness

An exciting new piece of theatre, commissioned by the Festival, takes us back in time to the 19th century and the infamous case of illegal gin smuggling in Kirkwall and the trial of James Kirkness, grocer.

By DUNCAN McLEAN
Directed by MARILYN IMRIE
Sound Designer PIPPA MURPHY

The action takes place around Broad Street in Kirkwall, site of Kirkness's store, and flips between the 19th century and modern times to tell this extraordinary, but little-known tale.

A combination of music and theatre, this fast-paced play is written by Kirkwall's well-known writer and current wine merchant, Duncan McLean and directed
by Marilyn Imrie.
