Scotties on in The Abbey Theatre

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.

Scotties is a powerful new play celebrating the music and languages of Scotland and Ireland.

Cailleadh deichniúr buachaillí óga as Acaill go tubaisteach in Albain nuair a chuaigh an bothán a raibh siad ag fanacht ann trí thine i 1937. Teileagram as Éirinn a spreagann údar an dráma seo agus a mhúsclaíonn an t-anam i mbuachaill óg atá anois ag streachailt lena ghuth fhéin i nGlaschú. Nuadhráma cumhachtach a dhéanann ceiliúradh ar cheol agus ar theangacha na hAlban agus Éirinn.
