On a remote and distant Scottish island, amateur theatre company the Loch Parry Players are rehearsing a stage version of The Wicker Man. However, their leading man has gone missing in ‘mysterious circumstances’, so they’ve hired an actor – who plays a cop on the telly — to come over from the mainland and step in at the last minute.
Based on the Motion Picture “The Wicker Man”, Motion Picture Screenplay by Anthony Shaffer, composed by Paul Giovanni, and the novel Ritual by David Pinner. And by Special Arrangement with StudioCanal.
Written by Greg Hemphill and Donald McLeary
Directed by Vicky Featherstone
Co-written by and starring one of Scotland’s wittiest performers, Greg Hemphill of Chewin’ the Fat fame, An Appointment with the Wicker Man features a fantastic onstage line-up of some of Scotland’s funniest and best known performers – Sean Biggerstaff, Jimmy Chisholm, Johnny McKnight, Sally Reid, Paul Riley and Ros Sydney.
An Appointment with the Wicker Man is a love letter to a unique and timeless cult masterpiece, except that someone forgot to pay the postage. This adaptation messes with forces it can’t possibly comprehend and at the end of the night, only one thing is for sure… someone’s going to burn for this!
