The Cheviot, The Stag and the Black, Black Oil

Barrie Hunter can be seen in Dundee Rep’s touring production The Cheviot, The Stag and the Black, Black Oil from 31st August to the 22nd October 2016

The highly acclaimed production tells the history and the tragedy of Scotland, performed as a Highland ceilidh, with song, humour and drama intermixed; creating a unique theatrical event, that remains as vital and relevant today as it was when 7:84 Scotland first presented it, over 40 years ago.

It has everything, and it throws it at you in generous handfuls; laughter, farce, drama, live song and dance, finely researched political intent.’ (David Pollock, The Independent), The Cheviot is ‘rousing, raucous, polemical, plangent and fun’ (Mark Fisher, The Guardian).
