Playwright and Associate Artist at Theatre Gu Leòr, Catriona Lexy Campbell, in conversation with Muireann Kelly, Artistic Director at Theatre Gu Leòr.

Abstract

 Where did you grow up, Catriona?

I grew up on the Isle of Lewis and lived there till I was nine. We then moved to a village called Plockton on the west coast, near the Isle of Skye.

And was it all Gaelic that you spoke in the house or was it a mixture of Gaelic and English?

When we lived in Lewis, it was all Gaelic within the family and within our community but in Plockton there was quite a substantial reduction in the amount of Gaelic that we spoke. It wasn’t a Gaelic-speaking community and we weren’t in a Gaelic-speaking school so, fairly quickly, our day-to-day language became English.
