New Deer is all set to welcome a Scottish play next week.

As part of their tour, Stoirm Og will be taking their play The Idiot at the Wall to New Deer Public Hall on Friday, October 4 at 7.30pm.

The Idiot at the Wall is set on a Hebridean island in September 1918.

Based on a Celtic folk myth it explores the story of two sisters and how their traditional way of life struggles against the modern world.

Jumping from fiction to reality, the play presents a poignant tale all but lost to the modern world and is told through traditional Hebridean storytelling, live music and song.

Gaelic songs will be performed live by the actors, enrich an emotional, original score composed and arranged by Murdo Turner, Tim de Feu, Annie Grace and Aly Macrae.

Volunteer promoter, Sue Robertson, said “This is Stoirm Og’s first major tour of this show after a sellout run at the Edinburgh Fringe last year.

“We are delighted that they are bringing it to New Deer.”

The production are looking forward to an excellent evening in New Deer.

Wine and soft drinks will be on sale. Tickets are £10 and £8 and can be purchased from The Pharmacy or Food for Thought, New Deer on 01771 644217/644366 or online at
