Our work stretches across a national and international platform, yet our distinctiveness lies in being "of the place", rooted in who we are, and the creativity of Gaelic and the Outer Hebrides takes centre stage.

‘A jewel of a little theatre in the centre of the market town of Boston. It is a 229-seat theatre built inside the remains of the refectory of a Dominican monastery, with parts of the structure dating back to the 12th and 13th centuries. It is, of course, a listed building ... Over the years its fortunes waxed and waned, but small subsidies from Boston Borough Council and, later, the Arts Council, enabled it to survive. Unfortunately in this day and age such subsidies have disappeared and we now receive no grants and have to survive on our merits ...’
