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.
