Torwatletie

This October the Guild of Players present Torwatletie.

Torwatletie is the name of a house and farm about a mile from Balmaclellan, a village tucked into a fold of the Galloway Hills. In the troubled times of the 17th and 18th Centuries when the religious rivalry was the order of the day, this fold in the Galloway Hills was used as a hiding place /meeting place where like-minded people could congregate and talk. However there was no room for complacency as walls had ears and secret passages, and people had loose tongues and were not to be trusted.

This dramatic comedy is set in the years following the failed Jacobite uprising of 1715 when Presbyterians and Episcopalians were at loggerheads and Hanoverians were out to stem the popularity of the Jacobites through persecution and demanding that they pledge allegiance to their king

Robert Mclellan skillfully unfolds the plot with humour at an almost farcical level. You know what they say, you can take a horse to water - and it can pretend to drink!!………and the rest is history
