THE ELECTRIFYING MR JOHNSTON
A new play about one of Scotland’s great unsung heroes, Tom Johnston, once described by Churchill as the 'King of Scotland', focusing on his struggles to bring “light to the glens.” Through incredible feats of engineering and political manoeuvring, he sought to transform the lives of everyone in the north of Scotland by bringing hydroelectric power to the Highlands & Islands.
A story of power-and the struggle for it.

Reproduction of the Tom Johnston portrait by kind permission of Scottish Friendly Assurance.

BITE-SIZE
