Finborough Theatre to Present  Scotland Decides/Tha Alba a'taghadh2014, 18 September

The Finborough Theatre, well known for their commitment to Scottish playwrights, presents its month long Scotland Decides/Tha Alba a'taghadh2014, a month long season to coincide with the Scottish Independence Referendum on Thursday 18 September 2014.

The season includes three classic Scottish rediscoveries and a brand new play, three of which are receiving their English premieres. The sparkling 18th century satire on the Union of Scotland and England, The Flouers o'Edinburgh by Robert McLellan plays for four weeks from 2-27 September 2014; the English premiere of the Scots verse drama on the life of 'Braveheart' - The Wallace by Sydney Goodsir Smith, plays on Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays between 7-23 September 2014; the English premiere of leading 'Yes' campaigner Alan Bissett's new play Jock: Scotland on Trial runs for four late night performances between 10-13 September 2014; and a staged reading of John McGrath's Little Red Hen - a sweeping history of 'Red Clydeside' that asks whether political self-determination is ever achievable without economic independence - receives a staged reading on the evening of referendum day itself - Thursday, 18 September 2014.
