Oh, What A Lovely War!

Autumn 2014 - “Oh, What A Lovely War!”

We put this on to mark the 100th Anniversary of the start of World War One.

Production dates were 9th–13th September, at 7:30pm, with a Matinée at 2:30pm on the Saturday.

A lot of hard work was put in by cast and crew, and while it was a relief to finally get through the week, we hope that you enjoyed it as much as we did.

The Inverness Courier reviewed it...


“Pack of Lies” by Hugh Whitemore, directed by Stephen Vincent has regretfully been cancelled, following the sad death of Florians stalwart, Johnathan Stuart.

Anyone who has bought tickets should have received a full refund from our ticket agents, with the exception of any costs incurred sending tickets by post.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.


We took part in the SCDA One-Act Play Festival. The Moray District Heats took place again this year in our own theatre, on Friday and Saturday 21st & 22nd February.

Our two plays were “The Student and The Cockatoo”, by Malcolm Wroe, directed by Fiona McDonald, and “Alternative Accomodation”, by Pam Valentine, directed by Claire Cameron.

The SCDA Highland Division Final was on Friday 4th & Saturday 5th April 2014 at 7pm in Nairn Community & Arts Centre.

Fiona and her team have won through to the Scottish Finals, by coming second overall at Nairn.

Another long list of trophies – Fiona’s sideboard is groaning under the weight of the following:

  • Caroline Groves Trophy for Second Place
  • Dick Lauder Trophy for Highest Production Mark
  • James Weir Trophy for Comedy with the Highest Mark
  • MacLennan Trophy for Highest Stage Presentation Mark

We went on to the Scottish Final, held in East Kilbride, from Thursday 24th–Saturday 26th April.

We failed to get to the British Finals, but we salute Fiona and her team, who have done very well to progress this far in the competition.
