Alone on a stormy night in an isolated house, Lydia Ross awaits her new lodger, but Lindsay Guthrie turns out not to be quite what she had in mind... This thriller looks at the toxicity of co- dependent relationships and just how far people will go to get what they want. A contemporary new Gàidhlig drama with English subtitles, animation and haunting soundscape.

'Plenty of potential and some real narrative tension' - The Scotsman

This melodrama is ... nicely judged, with good direction from Muireann Kelly, beautiful ominous animation and design by Iain Craig and a chilly piano/acoustic guitar score from Ross Brown. Occasionally, its claustrophobia resembles Roman Polanski's thriller Repulsion.....elements work beautifully and the writing has real potential'. - Across the Arts

'The production ...has a look, and feel, of real quality about it. As tensions rise, identities are scrutinised, and dubious power-play motives come to the fore. It also features two solid performances from Donna Nic Leoid and Dol Eoin Mackinnon' - The Herald

'The ever changing power balance between the leads makes for interesting viewing in Catrìona Lexy Chaimbeul’s new play Doras Dùinte….there is a good chemistry between the Donna Nic Leòid’s agitated Lydia and Dòl Eoin MacKinnon’s more relaxed Guthrie...the haunting music by Ross Brown makes for a lovely soundtrack behind the action and draws you into the intense atmosphere.' - The Skinny


“This was my first experience of attending a Gaelic play…I was engrossed with the compelling actor’s performances and the storyline slowly built and maintained the suspense until the very end.” non- Gàidhlig speaker, Oran Mòr

“Minority languages on stage raise their public status, essential for their survival.”  non- Gàidhlig speaker, Oran Mòr

 “…really enjoyed watching something which wasn’t labouring a historical or insular portrayal of what’ Gaelic’ is today or what an audience interested in Gaelic might come to see. It was a thriller and really could have been performed in any language – refreshing!” - Oran Mòr

“My students were really pleased that they were able to follow the storyline and were delighted to be able to purchase bilingual copies of the play afterwards.”  - Gàidhlig tutor, Oran Mòr

“Not your usual Gaelic topic and all the more enjoyable for it. Subtitles weren’t an issue for me as a Gaelic speaker, but liked that they weren’t running along the bottom in a distracting way. The two leads were captivating and kept my attention. Win win.” - Native Gàidhlig speaker, Oran Mòr

“Easy to follow, the script was interesting and the actors were fantastic. Lots more like this please!” - Oran Mòr

“It was the fact that it was a Gàidhlig play that attracted me, and...the play and the troubles that the characters suffered from drew you in instantly…it drew people in without Gaelic with the use of subtitles.” - Oran Mòr
