It is December 1936, and Broadway star William Gillette, admired the world over for his leading role in the play Sherlock Holmes, has invited his fellow cast members to his Connecticut castle for a weekend of revelry. But when one of the guests is stabbed to death, the festivities in this isolated house of tricks and mirrors quickly turn dangerous.
“I have never seen a bad play at Barony. it’s some kind of law of physics that it’s impossible for you all to do anything bad. Well done tonight gang-that was brilliant! absolutely loved it. ”
“What a wonderful show last night!! Lots of genuine “laugh-out-loud” moments. Well done to the cast and production team and good luck for the rest of the run.“
“A typical Barony Theatre production, as always!! Well done everyone!!”
“Just in from the Barony play and it was fabulous. Loved it! A strong, talented cast and wonderful set.”
“Loved it well done to you all!“
“Well done to all. I loved it.”
“As per usual, a top quality play by The Barony Players The scenery was magnificent (what a lot of work has gone in to producing that!) and the acting was divine. Huge congratulations to all involved! Bravo!

Life is one long, hard slog for the fish-filleting foursome Pearl, Jan, Shelley and Linda. But their fortunes are set to change when they head to Ladies Day at the races. Factory hairnets make way for fascinators as the four friends hit the races for an unforgettable day out.
Secrets are spilled with the champagne and friendships are tested to the limit. Yet as the day unfolds and tempers fray, their accumulator bet keeps quietly winning. If their luck and their nerve holds, the ladies could could hit the jackpot – and more.
““Who needs the Edinburgh Festival when you have the Barony Players!””
“Congratulations to all in Ladies Day. Great entertainment. Great rapport between the ladies.“
“Thoroughly enjoyed the play last night. It was humourful with poignant parts that brought a tear to the eye. Cleverly done! Congratulations to the four ladies and their guys in support. Another tiptop production from you all.”

David Hayman returns as everyman Bob Cunninghame.
Bob is in a hospital bed. A long dark night of the soul, in an understaffed ward, a single room. Another stormy night. Rain and wind. He’s on the top floor of the hospital. The Death Star.
He might be bed-bound, but in his thoughts, he can get up, move around, hear and speak to others… It’s the inside of his head we’re watching.
We don’t know what’s wrong with him, but he’s broken – as is the world around him… And what will the next morning bring? It sounds like a painful and risky procedure, but Bob is convinced he won’t survive it.
None of this, of course, stops Bob from talking twenty-to-the dozen, ranting about injustice and the state of the world…. No way Bob’s going gently into that good night, he’ll burn and rave at close of day, raging against the dying of the light.
And despite it all, he laughs at everything, including himself. (‘Covid, the flu, and Boris Johnson walking into A&E… It’s a really sick joke….’)
He’ll even sing (like a Singing Detective?)
All night long, as dawn approaches Bob reflects on his own life, and on the NHS, the politics of the pandemic, the rise of the right, Independence, climate change, the future. The human condition and the coming of the end.

9th – 14th May 2022
The Barony Players transported us back to October, 1941. The Hebridean islands of Great Todday and Little Todday are sunk deep in the doldrums of a spiritless wartime existence, till the s.s. Cabinet Minister runs aground nearby, and by a miracle there is uisghe beatha gu leoir. Various young couples find the path of true love smoothed and the village schoolmaster slays his personal dragon, but the commander of the local Home Guard finds his duty becoming harder every day.
