The Stamping Ground

An uplifting new musical, featuring the songs of Runrig. 

When together-forever couple Euan and Annie return home, they’re seeking a ‘fresh start’ for their teenage daughter. But there’s a heatwave in the Highlands and they soon find themselves lost in this once familiar place, now filled with more tourists than residents.  

As relationships ignite and smoulder, Euan and Annie find themselves swept into a battle to save the heart of the community. But can they save each other?  

The Stamping Ground is a story about love, life and the land. 

A Raw Material and Eden Court co-production 
This production is funded by Creative Scotland
