CAL­I­FOR­NIAN stu­dents vis­ited Glenelg to learn about High­land cul­ture be­fore stag­ing a world pre­miere per­for­mance at the Ed­in­burgh Fringe.

The 18 young men and women from Pep­per­dine Univer­sity, in Mal­ibu, are spend­ing a week with play­wright and cul­tural con­sul­tant Eddie Stiven, who is in­tro­duc­ing them to ev­ery­thing from his­tory and folk­lore to Gaelic lan­guage.

Eddie said: ‘Com­ing to the High­lands is a won­der­ful ex­pe­ri­ence and lets them see a very dif­fer­ent side to Scot­land than the one they will get in the cen­tral belt. It’s a chance to be im­mersed in his­to­ries and cul­tures with roots that go back mil­len­nia.’

The stu­dents will go to Sab­hal Mor Os­taig Col­lege on Skye to get a taste of Gaelic and a masterclass from Gaelic play­wright and ac­tor, Ca­tri­ona Lexy Camp­bell.

The time in Glenelg will also be used to re­hearse

The In­ter­fer­ence, a play by Fringe First win­ning Scot­tish-based play­wright Lynda Radley.

The stu­dents from Mal­ibu learn about the High­lands.
