Doras Duinte (Closed Door)

Synopsis:
Doras Duinte is a contemporary Gaelic thriller that tells the story of Lydia Ross, an agoraphobic woman, and her enigmatic lodger, Lindsay Guthrie. Lydia is in financial trouble when Guthrie comes to her rescue. He begins to help her on the road to recovery but Guthrie may not be all he seems. Drawing inspiration from the works of Hitchcock and Patrick Hamilton, the piece is an examination of obsession, trust and isolation.

MacBheatha

Synopsis:
A vision of a dystopian, superstitious, tribal Scotland. The Macbeth couple rise to power by brutal bloody means leading to their inevitable downfall holed up in their bunker. Suitable for non-Gaelic speakers. A powerful new one-hour adaptation, translated into richly atmospheric Gaelic. A two-person format throws fierce emphasis onto the blighted and deteriorating relationship between Macbheatha and his wife. Superb, passionate and driven performances, sexually charged and blazing with ambition. **** (Scotsman). www.madeinscotlandshowcase.com

Notes:
By William Shakespeare translated in Gaelic by Ian MacDonald with David Walker and Catriona Lexy Campbell.
