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…”
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.

A quintessentially Scottish piece of theatre
An entertainment of remarkable contemporary relevance.
The best and most important performance Mareel has ever seen.
It has everything, and it throws it at you in generous handfuls; laughter, farce, drama, live song and dance, finely research political intent.
Powerful and relevant.
This astute new revival understands its history.
Relevant, bold and enjoyable.
