"Beautifully written and powerfully performed... truly unforgettable."
“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, with a creative team drawn from both nations.
Accessible to audiences both with and without Gaelic.
