Glasgow Merchant City & online download

12 - 25 April 2021 (subject to latest Covid-19 regulations)


I am this city. I am my master’s house.
Built with my blood, my sweat, my dying.
I am Glasgow. Proud. Puffed. Primped.

A young man in 18th Century Glasgow, leads us on a powerful journey of over 500 years of resistance through the streets of the Merchant City down to the River Clyde.

Download the app, plug in your headphones, and immerse yourself in this AR experience exploring the myth of the collective amnesia of slavery and racialised wealth, of empire and identity, and of being lost and found in space and time.

Using visuals and music, Ghosts will take you on a physical and emotional journey, walking through the heart of modern Glasgow. A lament to lives lost and an impassioned call to action in the present day.

Written and Directed by Adura Onashile.

A National Theatre of Scotland Production.
