A Scottish play performed in English and Gaelic is to go on tour to New York.

In My Father's Words, a Dundee Rep production, is to take part in the Brits Off Broadway festival in the American city in June.

The theatre has been awarded £58,000 by Creative Scotland to take the play to the States.

The play has previously had runs in Dundee and Glasgow and toured the Highlands and Islands.

Executives from 59E59 Theatres in New York saw the play in Stornoway last summer and offered up their stage in New York.

Philip Howard, director of the play, said taking the production to America was "an incredible opportunity".
