The Weather Watchers by Bernie McGill, a play for young audiences produced and toured by Cahoots NI May/June 2006.

Archie had had enough of the weather. Everything he wanted to do and everywhere he wanted to go was determined by the barometer in Granny Jo’s kitchen. When Archie was prevented from going to the fair he decided it was time to do something about it and things in the McStocker household were never the same again.
Audiences joined Archie on his eventful journey through Weather World where he encountered some very strange happenings, and discovered the wonder of what was right under his nose once he’d taken his eyes off the clouds.
