The Cheviot, The Stag and The Black, Black Oil - CANCELLED

About The Cheviot, The Stag and The Black, Black Oil - CANCELLED

A ceilidh through Scotland’s past – and present.

This legendary piece of Scottish theatre tells the story of the exploitation of Scottish lands, waters and people over the centuries.

From the highland clearances to the oil boom, this is the universal tale of how the greed of a few blights the lives of many. Add a generous dose of Scottish rebellion and irreverence. Throw in some live music and a riotous ceilidh – you’ve got yourself a rollicking great night out.

Back by popular demand following the completely sold out tour in 2019, with more dates and venues on sale soon including St Andrews, Musselburgh, Peebles and Dumfries.

Come and experience the “Story that has a beginning, a middle but, as yet, no end…”

Written by John McGrath. Directed by Joe Douglas.
National Theatre of Scotland in association with Dundee Rep Theatre and Live Theatre, and Newcastle presents.
Based on the original production by Dundee Rep Theatre.

Running Time:
160 minutes

Recommended Age Guide:
14+
