Over Hill & Clydesdale: The Scots Whay Hae! Podcast Talks To Braw Clan...



For the latest Scots Whay Hae! Podcast Ali talks to director Pauline Lynch and actor Fletcher Mathers about the new Scots language theatre company Braw Clan, and the forthcoming debut production Secret Wrapped In Lead which will be touring throughout the Clydesdale district in July.

The play, which is written by Martin Travers, is based on the true story of Dorothy and William Wordsworth's visit to Leadhills in 1803, and Pauline and Fletcher tell us what they can about the story (avoiding spoilers), the challenges faced in getting the play from the page to the stage, as well as breaking down their own roles. They also discuss the formation of Braw Clan, the importance of keeping it local, the various dates on the tour, why Scots is at the heart of what they do, the sense of community which drives the project, and their hopes and plans for the future. It's exciting to hear about this new theatre company and the conversation whets the appetite for their debut production.

Wednesday 19 July | 7.30pm | Leadhills Village Hall

Friday 21 July | 7.30pm | Arts At Loaningdale
