    "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.

    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.

    Accessible to audiences both with and without Gaelic.

      The Scotsman
    • A brooding hybrid of theatrical forms... which moves between ceilidh and lament. ★★★★
      The Herald
    • The eight-strong cast... under a haunting lighting design by Simon Wilkinson emerge from Charlotte Lane’s translucent set like wandering souls. ★★★★
      Reviewsphere
    • Kelly and Poet have fashioned a script that moves dextrously between its four languages… An emotive and reverberating story that demands to be told.
      Herald on Sunday
    • A sharp reminder of the resilience of humanity, and how the stories we share are more than simple bonding experiences, but rather how we’re all rooted to the earth.
