We are passionate about encouraging contemporary Gaelic writing and creating a new repertoire of published Gaelic drama.

News 2019

In association with the Tron Theatre, Theatre Gu Leòr are developing a new piece of theatre with the hugely talented duo WHYTE, currently called ‘MAIM’. 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.
