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.
