About the Show
Paul Morrissey's supernatural thriller based on a true story.
When a ship arrives on an uninhabited island, the passengers find the lighthouse unlocked and two coats belonging to the three men who are missing. The fire has been out for days, the chairs overturned, and the lighthouse lamp is out. The three men have vanished.
'Wickies' is based on the true story of James Ducat, Thomas Marshall, and Donald MacArthur: a supernatural thriller that seeks to unravel the enduring mystery of the Vanishing Men of Eilean Mor.
'Wickies' is notable for absolutely fantastic technical work...It’s much to the play’s credit that it doesn’t shy away the fact the mystery remains unsolved. Instead it does present one likely explanation, but it’s very much only a suggestion."
“This bonnie wee play might not hold the answer to the vanishing men of Eilan Mor, but it gives its audience plenty to think about, Wickies is absolutely fascinating and is a story told with superb intricacy”
