Following on from last year's success with the ever-popular Whisky Galore - The Radio Play, this year's festival play will be a premiere, The Arrow, by local playwright, Robert Mercer Nairne from Meikleour.
The arrow in question is made of silver and was presented to the people of Rattray in the 17th century to commemorate an archery contest. Last competed for in 1727, the arrow has been in the custody of the Mercer Nairne family ever since.
Controversy raged locally some years ago when the arrow, which is worth tens of thousands of pounds, was put up for auction in London. On finding this out, local people protested vehemently and it was withdrawn. Ownership of the arrow has been hotly contested ever since.
The play explores the controversial history surrounding the arrow and the fate of the last winner.
