La Jolla Playhouse presents world premiere of "A Dram Of Drummhicit"

SAN DIEGO — La Jolla Playhouse will be presenting the world premiere of "A Dram of Drummhicit" by Arthur Kopit and Anton Dudley, directed by artistic eirector Christopher Ashley.

The show will be staged in the Mandell Weiss Theatre from May 17 to June 12. Tickets are available at the box office: (858) 550-1010 or ONLINE.

In "A Dram of Drummhicit," an American entrepreneur has found the perfect Scottish island on which to build his new golf course. But as secrets – and bodies – are unearthed, the true nature of the island wreaks comic havoc in this new supernatural comedy by the author of "Oh Dad, Poor Dad, Mama's Hung You in the Closet and I'm Feelin' So Sad" and the book for the Tony-winning musical "Nine."

“I have been an admirer of Arthur Kopit’s work for decades, and it is a pleasure and a privilege to kick off the Playhouse's 2011/12 season with his and Anton Dudley’s new work," Ashley said. "This funny and mysterious play shows what happens when modern American commercialism runs headlong into a Scottish island steeped in Celtic mythology.”
