Doon The Watter
Suitable for Adult Groups
A modern Scots comedy in one act. The play is an often hilarious and keenly-observed story of two pensioners, George and Willie, and their adventures on the seafront when they are given the chance to go on a nostalgic trip 'doon the watter'.
George and Willie arrive on the promenade of Rothesay. The organiser of the trip, Miss Cahn, is determined that the two OAPs shall take part in all the activities including bingo, but George and Willie are equally determined to do their own thing. The scene is set for a series of incidents involving amongst other things the Salvation Army, and rich comic dialogue as the two oldsters reflect on life and the world as they see it.
