Theatre Gu Leor presents
Adapted by Catriona Lexy Chaimbeul from the novel by Tormod Caimbeul, directed by Muireann Kelly.
“Perceptive, poetic and comedic…set in Edinburgh, in areas not unlike those featured in Irvine Welsh’s Trainspotting” Scottish Review of Books
Adapted from Tormod a Bhocsair's seminal Gaelic novel with anarchic humour, animation, subtitles and live music, Shrapnel is for Gaelic and non-Gaelic speakers alike. Set in the darkest depths of Leith, Shrapnel follows a man on the run for a crime he did not commit, as he meets an array of extraordinary misfits, with the psychopathic former detective, Walter Shrapnel never far behind.
Ath-sgrìobhadh den nobhail leis an sàr sgrìobhaiche, Tormod Caimbeul, le fella-dhà, le dealbhachadh, fo-thiotalan agus ceòl, tha Shrapnel freagarrach airson fìleantaich agus luchd-ionnsachaidh air fad. Air a’ stèidheachadh ann an dorchadas Lìte, tha sinn a' leantainn aithrisear ’s e a' siubhail air feadh a' bhaile a’ coinneachadh ri iomadach charactar annasach agus a’ seachnadh a' phoileis bhrùideil, Walter Shrapnel.
