Send home our dead / Beir abhaile ar marbh.

The untold story of ten young Irish lads lost in a Scottish bothy fire in 1937 wakes 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.

Thèid anam gille òg ann an Glaschu a dhùsgadh le sgeulachd mu dheichnear Èireannach a chaill am beatha ann an 1937 an tubaiste teine ann am bothan ann an Alba. Dealbh-chluich ùr le cànan agus ceòl Alba agus Èireann.

Accessible to audiences both with and without Gaelic.
