A rare opportunity to see this Scottish comedy by W. Maconachie. Set in a Scottish tolbooth (jail) during the late 1700s, the prisoners' level of incompetence at planning their escape is only matched by the ineffectiveness of their jailor. Confusion begins to reign when a visit by the wife of one of the prisoners coincides with a secret visit by some of the female prisoners. With the unexpected arrival of a fellow prisoner, a grave robber with principles, including not working on the Sabbath, we have all the ingredients needed for a classic comedy.
