A ceilidh through Scotland’s past – and present.

the_cheviot_the_stag_and_the_black_black_oil_coming_to_achiltibuie

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.

 

Tickets £12 – available from The National Theatre of Scotland website.
