The Cheviot, The Stag and The Black, Black Oil at Live Theatre

About

From the highland clearances to the oil boom, this is the universal tale of how the greed of a few blights the lives of the 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.

1973 was a big year for radical, working class theatre. Whilst Live Theatre began touring into social clubs around Newcastle, 7:84 Theatre Company were doing the same with The Cheviot… across Scotland. The two companies were part of the same struggle.

45 years on, this new production of The Cheviot… takes the story back to its roots by visiting village halls in the Highlands and Islands, echoing the play’s original 1970s tour. The play was a phenomenal success for Joe Douglas in 2015, before he became Live Theatre’s Artistic Director.  He returns to direct, bringing it to Live Theatre, the only English venue on the tour.

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

Presented by the National Theatre of Scotland in association with Dundee Rep Theatre and Live Theatre
