Scotties

“Beir abhaile ar marbh / Send home our dead” – A telegram from Ireland in 1937 inspires the untold story of ten young lads from Achill lost in a Scottish bothy fire. The effects reach across the sea, waking the soul of a young Glasgow boy today struggling to find his voice.
A powerful new play celebrating the music and languages of Scotland and Ireland.

Accessible to audiences both with and without Gaelic.
