The Stornoway Way

Adapted by Kevin MacNeil from his best-selling novel, The Stornoway Way is full of wit and wisdom, both a romantic evocation and a scabrous critique of the Isle of Lewis!

The Stornoway Way

About The Stornoway Way

The play tells the story of Roman Stornoway, a struggling musician, and his best friend Eilidh. Both are disaffected underachievers, who use alcohol to fuel and delay their dreams of escape from the island. They eventually manage to make their way to the city, where Roman is smitten by the mysterious Hungarian student Eva.

With a variety of voices from Lewis and a musical soundtrack featuring original and traditional songs in Gaelic and English, The Stornoway Way is irreverent, witty and honest, a bittersweet theatrical rom-com, twisted, squeezed out and hungover, a story about the search for the ideal, the desire for happiness and the struggle to come to terms with who you are, versus who you want to be.

“The best Scottish book since Trainspotting... full of wisdom, jokes, poetic language and mind-burning imagery.” - The Scotsman

“Does for the Western Isles what Rankin and Welsh did for Edinburgh.” - The Times

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Stornoway Way are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
