Synopsis

James is a successful entrepreneur with a beautiful wife and a swanky London flat. But when the creditors move in and his wife moves out, James suddenly finds he's left with nothing. Nothing but words. James' father is dying - his last connection to the language of his birth, Scots Gaelic. As the words start to slip away, he journeys home to search for his true identity. A rich and complex new play, first produced by the National Theatre of Scotland, exploring how language defines who we are.
