By Stephen Jeffreys, after Robert Louis Stevenson
Directed by Gerry Mulgrew
An updating of the Stevenson story The Bottle Imp, a tale of destiny and the fateful nature of desire. Placed on an unnamed Caribbean island, the Faustian allegory of a magic bottle which can bestow unlimited power to the owner, in return for the owner’s soul, is set in the midst of a bloody revolution.
“A superb brass trio and rhythm excelled themselves throughout with some very exciting music which kept the Lerwick audience enthralled with the whole scenario. I can only commend Communicado on such an exhilerating performance and hopefully they will return sometime in the near future with a third success to entertain Shetland audiences.”
