About 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 everyone, with or without Gaelic.
