THE CHEVIOT, THE STAG AND THE BLACK, BLACK OIL NO LONGER GOING AHEAD AS PLANNED

Due to COVID-19, Scottish Government guidelines and our commitment to safeguarding audiences and those we work with, it is with great sadness that we announce that the 9 - 12 September 2020 Cheviot dates at the Pavilion will no longer be going ahead as planned.

We would like to thank our partners, venues, funders, supporters and audiences for their continued generous support. Our thoughts are with everyone who is struggling at this difficult time.

A ceilidh through Scotland’s past – and present.

This legendary piece of Scottish theatre tells the story of the exploitation of Scottish lands, waters and people over the centuries.

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.

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

#Cheviot

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.
