Culture 2014 will showcase the vibrancy of Scottish theatre through performance, interactive work, pop-up pieces, open air shows and Commonwealth collaborations.

Dundee Rep Theatre presents 'In My Father's Words', a play about identity and language. This ground-breaking collaboration between Justin Young and Iain F Macleod about the Scottish emigrant experience in Canada tells the profoundly moving story of a father and son.

Part of the exciting Edinburgh Fringe programme, The Bridge by Annie George is a theatrical performance tracing the remarkable story of a family from the present day to pre-Independence Kerala, India.

For a theatre production with a difference, check out The Spokesman – a celebration of the great outdoors in Scotland’s local parks and green spaces – which runs until 19 July 2014.

Adding to the exciting collection of theatre in Festival 2014, the Tron Theatre's 'Home Nations' Commonwealth programme features a dramatically varied selection of theatre, with something for all tastes. Home Nations is inspired by the works of Edwin Morgan, Dylan Thomas, Seamus Heaney, Carol Ann Duffy, and the productions of Under Milk Wood, Beowulf, Grimm's Tales and Dreams and Other Nightmares.
