Theatre Gu Leòr, supported by National Theatre of Scotland and The Abbey Theatre present: SCOTTIES by Muireann Kelly & Frances Poet at the Lemon Tree

“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.

Le teileagram à Èirinn ann an 1937 dh’ fhosgail sgeulachd mu dheichnear ghillean òga

à Eilean Acla a fhuair bàs ann an tubaiste teine ann am bothan ann an Alba. Is ann an Glaschu an-diugh tha buaidh am bàis a’ dùsgadh anam gille òg ’s e a’ feuchainn ri a ghuth a lorg. Dealbh- chluich ùr dhrùideach le cànan agus ceòl Alba agus Èireann.

“Exhilarating… Something of Shrapnel slices into the soul and lodges.”
(Observer on Theatre Gu Leòr’s Shrapnel)

“Astonishingly bold and surreal… a Gaelic soul half-lost in urban Scotland”
(Scotsman on Theatre Gu Leòr’s Shrapnel)

“Ingenious… filling the room with a muscular, earthy, untidy poetry”
(Sunday Herald on Theatre Gu Leòr’s Cèilidh)
