showtime for gaelic youth theatre

Friday 4th September 2015

The Gaelic Youth Theatre festival ‘Fèis Thèatar Òigridh Gàidhlig’, which is now in it’s third year, will be held at Eden Court in Inverness on Thursday 10th of September 2015. This year’s festival, hosted by Eden Court CREATIVE in partnership with Fèisean nan Gàidheal, will feature Gaelic plays from three Gaelic Youth Theatres, from Tain, Dingwall and Inverness, with the first performance at 7.00 pm. Tickets are £5 / £3 concessions. Tickets can be booked online through the Eden Court website.

‘Falaichte’ (Hidden) a new play by TÒG Bhaile Dhubhthaich tells the story of an ambitious archaeologist and evidence of a crime that can no longer be hidden.

‘An Taghadh’ (The Election) a new play from TÒG Inbhir Pheofharain follows the journey of a man who dreams of political success but faces unlikely opposition.

‘Brathadairean’ by Sgioba Dràma Òigridh Inbhir Nis – written by Ben Ockrent and translated into Gaelic by Eden Court CREATIVE’s Roddy Nicolson – is about a group of harmless IT nerds who call themselves hackers. The dynamics of the gang change when a new girl joins.

Through support from Bòrd na Gàidhlig’s ‘Gaelic Drama Network’ scheme, Fèisean nan Gàidheal and Eden Court are working together to increase the opportunities for Gaelic speaking high school pupils in Highland to learn drama skills and perform through the medium of Gaelic. More information about the Gaelic Youth Theatre’s in Tain and Dingwall can be found on the Fèisean nan Gàidheal website at www.feisean.org/tog
