The Old Man of Lochnagar [Paperback]

David Wood

Available from these sellers.

Book Description

Oct 1986 Plays for young people
A musical play adapted from the highly successful story written by HRH The Prince of wales for his two younger brothers. The Old Man lives in a cave by a loch in the Highlands of Scotland. We follow his quest to save the Gorms - who use dye from the bristles of thistles to spray the white heather purple - from the menacing Giant Gormless who wants to put them in a circus. He goes under the sea, through the air and into Gorm Grotto, meeting a wealth of eccentric characters, including the Pig Eagle, a grumpy Grouse and a thrace of Loch-Haggis. The Old Man of Lochnagar was premiered by Whirligig Theatre at His Majesty's Theatre, Aberdeen in 1986. Illustrated. (Cast 6m, 6f)
