A Bride for Heatherhill

By Joe Corrie

Item details

"Hoo could I rest beside my forefaithers wi' a clear conscience kennin' that my farm would pass into the hands o' a stranger when Tam passed awa'?". That is old Adam Buchan's dilemma for his son, Tam, isn't the marrying kind, or is he interested in keeping the farm in the hands of the Buchan family where it has been for generations. The matter has become urgent for Adam because he is now distressed by a persistent cough. The woman he has in mind for a wife for Tam is Jean Lowrie, the level-headed daughter of a dairyman, whose life-ambition has been to be sole mistress of a farm. How she first wins Tam over to her, and then makes sure that Adam will hand over his farm to Tam the day after the wedding makes for good comedy. A play that is easy to stage, and certain to win much laughter.
