An exuberant "Ceilidh" play with scenes songs and music of Highland history from the clearances to the oil strike

Strathoykel, Sutherland. "When the Sheriff and his men arrived, the women were on the road and the men behind the walls

The women shouted 'Better to die here than America or the Cape of Good Hope'

The first blow was struck by a woman with a stick. The gentry leant out of their saddles and beat at the women's heads with their crops" ~ John McGrath
