THEATRE GU LEÒR IS AN INNOVATIVE AND CONTEMPORARY SCOTTISH GAELIC THEATRE COMPANY, SHOWCASING THE BEST IN NEW GAELIC PLAYWRITING
We are committed to producing Gaelic theatre with the highest production values. Through the innovative use of multi-media and digital technologies, we bring Gaelic theatre to a wide and diverse audience across Scotland. Both creative learning and skills development are an integral part of our work. We are passionate about encouraging contemporary Gaelic writing and creating a new repertoire of published Gaelic drama.
In 2018 Theatre Gu Leòr was nominated for the Arts and Culture Award, sponsored by Creative Scotland, at the Scottish Gaelic Awards for our production of Cèilidh and won the award in 2016 for their production of Shrapnel.
In association with the Tron Theatre, Theatre Gu Leòr are developing a new piece of theatre with the hugely talented duo WHYTE, currently called 'Mùthadh / Mutation’ (working title). Inspired by tracks from this unique album, the piece will be a call to arms, giving voice to the frustrations of the next generation who care deeply about the connection between their land and language. The new piece will be on tour throughout Scotland in March 2020.
