The Cheviot, the Stag and the Black, Black Oil (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.
Written by John McGrath and directed by Joe Douglas, The Cheviot, the Stag, and the Black, Black Oil is a National Theatre of Scotland production in association with Dundee Rep Theatre and Live Theatre, Newcastle. Based on the original production by Dundee Rep Theatre.
