This week’s Play, Pie and Pint at Oran Mor is Lynn Ferguson’s Turns Of The Tide and features BAA’s Mark McDonnell.
Sisters, Sandy and Rose claim to be identical in almost every way: Runaway winners of Butlin’s talent competition 1959, they’ve been tartan-clad singing sensation, “The Heather Belles” ever since.
For the last 20 years they’ve entertained exhaustively on Mediterranean cruise-ships. So, when they unexpectedly find themselves free to spend Christmas in Boness with their elderly mother, Shona, they pack up their mini-kilts with glee.
Just one more performance and they’ll be back on shore. Easy.
Except, no one can predict what gets left high and dry when the tide turns.
