Gaelic Theatre with subtitles.
Adapted by Catriona Lexy Chaimbeul from Tormod Caimbeul’s, (Tormod a’ Bhocsair) seminal Gaelic novel, with animation, subtitles, live music and with anarchic humour. ‘Shrapnel’ is for Gaelic and non-Gaelic audiences alike. Set in the darkest depths of Leith, we follow a man on the run for a crime he did not commit, as he meets an array of extraordinary misfits, with the psychopathic former detective, Walter Shrapnel, never far behind.
Ath-sgrìobhadh den nobhail leis an sàr sgrìobhaiche, Tormod Caimbeul, le dealbhachadh, fo-thiotalan agus ceòl, tha Shrapnel freagarrach airson fìleantaich agus luchd-ionnsachaidh air fad. Air a’ stèidheachadh ann an dorchadas Lìte, tha sinn a’ leantainn aithrisear ’s e a’ siubhail air feadh a’ bhaile a’ coinneachadh ri iomadach charactar annasach agus a’ seachnadh a’ phoileis bhrùideil, Walter Shrapnel.
