A Ceilidh Through Scotland’s Past and Present Comes to the West Highlands

This legendary piece of Scottish theatre tells the story of the exploitation of Scottish lands, waters and people over the centuries, and it's coming to the West Highlands.

From the highland clearances to the oil boom, this is the universal tale of how the greed of a few blights the lives of many. Add a generous dose of Scottish rebellion and irreverence. Throw in some live music and a riotous ceilidh – you’ve got yourself a rollicking great night out.

Back by popular demand following the completely sold out tour in 2019, with more dates and venues on sale soon including Dumfries, Dalmally, Daliburgh, Tarbert, Latheron and Findhorn,

Come and experience the “Story that has a beginning, a middle but, as yet, no end…”

Written by John McGrath. Directed by Joe Douglas.

National Theatre of Scotland production in association with Dundee Rep Theatre and Live Theatre, Newcastle. Based on the 2015 production by Dundee Rep Theatre.
