The Stamping Ground

  • Musicals
THE STAMPING GROUND is a new musical, featuring the songs of Runrig, about love, life and the land.

It’s the hottest summer in years and the villagers are sweltering. The heart of their community, the local pub, is for sale and tensions are rising about the future of this place they call home.

Newly returned together-forever couple Euan and Annie find themselves lost in this once familiar place, now filled with more tourists than residents, as they navigate a new life. 

Meanwhile, their disoriented teenage daughter takes a shine to a local activist, much to her overprotective dad’s disapproval, and Euan’s mother's life is upturned when an old flame returns home.

As relationships ignite and smoulder, the heartbeat of the land keeps beating as the villagers try to band together against the odds.

An Eden Court and Raw Material Arts co-production.
