    "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.
