National Theatre of Scotland in association with Dundee Rep Theatre and Live Theatre, Newcastle presents
The Cheviot, the Stag and the Black, Black Oil
Based on the original production by Dundee Rep Theatre
Written by John McGrath
Directed by Joe Douglas
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. Come and experience the ‘Story that has a beginning, a middle but, as yet, no end…’
‘raucous revival’ ★★★★★ (The Scotsman)
‘a quintessentially Scottish piece of theatre’ ★★★★ (The Guardian)
Running time: 2 hours 40 minutes
