Presented by the National Theatre of Scotland in association with Dundee Rep Theatre
and Live Theatre, Newcastle. Based on the 2015 production by Dundee Rep Theatre.
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...'

"Joe Douglas' glorious revival of what's arguably the single most important show
in the whole history of Scottish theatre" The Scotsman

"The Cheviot is 'rousing, raucous, polemical, plangent and fun" The Guardian
